habana - ernest hemingway's la finca vigia estate

a south american friend & his esposa went to havana, cuba and gave me his photos to share.

this thread is of morning visit 7 miles from la habana vieja (old havana) up to the hilltop san francisco de paula village and author ernest hemingway’s la finca vigia (lookout farm) estate, now a museum - enjoy!


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finca_Vig%C3%ADa






























this shot is the only panorama of havana possible here





















sights along the way to la finca vigia











the main havana train station is in the distance













finally, the house on the hill you see left of the havana christ statue was che guevara’s





*** i hope you enjoyed a rare glimpse into hemingway’s home in havana ***


ps -- the hemingway estate continues to give -- rare papers were uncovered in storage in the basement in 2002:

There are tours from Canada to Cuba, and it's quite popular in Toronto as a lot of my neighbours had been to Cuba, some go every winter for a week to escape the harsh winter here.
