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.
