Houses of Old Cuba by Llilian Llanes

Book Description

Cuba's unique history has meant that hundreds of magnificent buildings have been preserved, and although many are timeworn and in need of repair, their architectural splendour is still remarkable. Columns and colonades, balconies and courtyards, intricate work in iron and ornately modelled stucco and painted wooden shutters are among the many features characteristic of Cuban architectural style. The interiors and exteriors of beautiful houses and hotels from all over Cuba are presented here in colour illustrations, with an informative text on their heritage.
