The Hemingway's Route

Description

One of Havana’s best-kept treasures is its close relationship with US writer Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961).This has been evident since his days at Cojimar, a fishing town east of the capital which inspired his novel The old Man and the Sea(the 1954 Nobel Prize Winner) or his long hours at El Floridita, on the corner of Obispo Street, where he would always enjoy a daiquiri, or at the Bodeguita del Medio, where he would taste the classical cuban mojito.

However, his life in Cuba was marked by his days at Finca Vigia, which was his residence for two decades. Hemingway bought the house in 1939 and it was opened as a museum in 1964. It gathers all the moments of the writer’s life in Cuba, his work, books, paintings, clothes, hunting weapons and others. Under a very peculiar concept of a museum, visitors can see what is inside the mansion through its large glass windows, thus everything that surrounded Hemingway in his late years appear before the visitor just as if they were part of a modern film as well as the many stages of his complex personality.

To go up and down San Francisco de Paula`s most famous hill to take in the fresh air coming from the surrounding vegetation and to enjoy the green palm trees and the birds twittering amidst a peaceful atmosphere was a privilege that this great man made part of his daily life and which you can also share now. You can lunch in La Terraza de Cojimar restaurant where Hemingway celebrated his Nobel Prize with fishermen of the town.
