  • I thought I'd find in works of Wilfredo Lam, I found a photo exhibition, for me of little interest, of staff there were but they couldn't see why around there were offices, and this has been pointed out, perhaps you can invest 2 cuc n a good local beer, discouraged.

  • It is behind the Cathedral of Havana, is a small museum and Gallery of the the work of the great surrealist painter Wifredo Lam and promotes the Visual Arts and contemporary culture. There are also temporary exhibitions of painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, installation, drawing, video art, architecture, plastic stocks and folk art. In the place is the yellow Cafe, where you can enjoy a Mojito or something eating, while listening to live music in its pleasant colonial courtyard

  • The foremost centre for contemporary art in Havana. Right next to the Plaza Mayor, it's house in a beautiful colonial building. It closes early so show up before 3 pm!
  • The yellow courtyard of the Lam - the space that opened the door and welcomed us to do our weekly penalty, was the yellow courtyard. A site where gold dust, according to Rafa fell our soundman.  There took place the magic. Each week came people to share his art: singers, actors, painters. Here joined us a guitarist of filin, Yoyi, who brought the bonanza of this genre to our door and is was accompanying us on this journey to share the evening with artists and which was discovered as such. It was a place of freedom for many, including me.

Where to stay in Havana

Old Havana remains the most popular neighborhood to stay in Cuba's capital. Here you'll find all manner of accommodations, from budget guesthouses and bed and breakfasts to luxury hotels. Some of the back streets in the old town can be quite rough, so visitors with children might want to steer clear of the area. Providing a quieter, more residential alternative, the western suburb of El Vedado exudes a relaxed atmosphere and serves as the perfect spot for a family vacation. If you're after better beach access, look farther west to the upper-class district of Miramar.
