Description The Houses of Old Cuba by Llilian Llanes

From simple huts to grand palaces, all the secrets of Cuba past and present remain intact today in the city of Havana (now a World Heritage Site), in the towns of Trinidad, Camaguey and Santiago de Cuba, and in the beautiful countryside. This superbly illustrated book reveals a Cuban architectural heritage that was hidden from view before the resurgence of tourism in this fascinating Caribbean island. Drawing upon local archives, museum records, memoirs and diaries, Llilian Llanes describes Cuba'
s architectural history from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Evocative colour photographs illustrate the subject magnificently with exterior and interior views, and images of courtyards, balconies and galleries, as well as close-ups revealing balustrades, grilles and louvred doors. Extended captions explain these architectural features and provide fascinating details of Cuban daily life, customs and pastimes. This is a fabulous record of Cuba for the ever-growing legion of tourists and travellers visiting the country, and for all lovers of architecture.
