  • By the end of 1960, the new Cuban Revolutionary government had nationalised more than $25 billion worth of private property. This house (formerly owned by the American family, the Francke's) was part of this nationalisation, and was subsequently offered to Ecuadorian artist Oswaldo Guayasamín as a studio upon his first visit to Cuba in 1961. Oswaldo Guayasamín was a supporter of the Cuban Revolution and a good friend of Fidel Castro, he would regularly visit Cuba to paint in this property up until his death in 1999. The property is now known as Casa Oswaldo Guayasamín, and has been fully restored by the government and is open daily to the public as a museum and art gallery. It is a beautiful house to have a look around.
  • It's a very varied cultural space
