“In 1939 US novelist Ernest Hemingway rented a villa called Finca la Vigía on a hill at San Francisco de Paula, 15km southeast of central Havana. A year later he bought the house (1888) and property and lived there continuously until 1960, when he moved back to the US . The villa’s interior has remained unchanged since the day Hemingway left (there are lots of stuffed trophies), and the wooded estate is now a museum. Hemingway left his house and its contents to the ‘Cuban people,’ and his house has been the stimulus for some rare shows of US -Cuban cooperation. To prevent the pilfering of objects, visitors are not allowed inside the house, but there are enough open doors and windows.”
