  • We arrived without many references. At the entrance of the passage we were welcomed a young man who accompanied us on the visit. We met the artist, we met home, his Studio, his works abroad, school and Temple orixa. A curious place

  • Lots of art. Much history. People are very friendly and love to chat
  • Cool place to admire art. Don forget to say hi to Yari y Manuel. Ache pa mis hermanos
  • Nice artistic place, a guide took us around, tried to explain us what is what, but too fast. At the end wanted us to buy CD for 10 CUC and then disappeared.
  • Folks standing six deep to catch the dancing. Worth going to. Sunday after 12 noon.
  • don't miss Rumba music live every sunday
