  • Is one of the most important buildings, the architecture, history and culture. It is assumed that it was built in the mid 18th century. The building is a testament to the Spanish colonialism and Baroque footprint of Cuban colonial architecture, with influences from other styles like Neoclassical and Rococo, experts say. Right foot too high and thick walls; the monumental staircase and the facade of pilasters that provide a sober and elegant look to the residence, one of the oldest, being saved, the city of Santa Maria del Puerto del Principe. Highlighted in this architectural piece your large balcony and small wooden verandas around the façade, an evidence of the Spanish Baroque. On 23 December 1841 was born here the Major General of the Cuban Liberation Army known as "The Mayor". Was one of the most prominent leaders of the Ten Years ' war. He organized the famous Cavalry camagüeyana, in front of which got big wins against Spanish colonial troops.
