The perfect introduction to Cuba, for those who can t resist the island s charm.
At a time when more travelers are discovering or rediscovering Cuba, this book is an in-depth exploration of 101 of the most authentic and compelling sites that reveal the real Cuba. Caribbean antiques expert, art historian, and adventurer Michael Connors presents the breadth of this island s most intriguing destinations and architectural treasures. The book features iconic places such as the tobacco plantations in Pinar del Rio, the fortresses and palacios, Hemingway s home outside of Havana, Xanadu (the DuPont mansion), the old French Triolet Pharmacy in Matanzas, and the Sugar Mill Valley in Sancti Spiritus. The lush photographs were shot exclusively for this book, bringing each location and treasure alive. It is a traveller s mantra these days: see Cuba before it loses its 1950s nostalgia and turns into a tourist trap. Whether you are planning a trip or dreaming of faraway places from the comfort of your living room, this volume is more than a reference book, it is an insider s guide to the heart and soul of exquisite, nostalgic, and always fascinating Cuba.
