Food was good but not great, but the atmosphere is truly memorable. The outside seating, the decorative space heaters, and the foliage in the patio of the grand “Casa de Americas,” makes for a great dining area. The food was reasonable, and some of us...More

A proper gem if you are a cigar smoker. The Cuban tobacco company runs a smoking lounge in the basement. Not only does it have a proper selection of Cuba's favourite cigars to be enjoyed in the lounge. Well ventilated smoking lounge AND it has...More

My wife and I saw the two exhibitions, one about Garcilaso de la Vega, and the other about Saint Teresa. Both exhibitions were very good and interesting. We enjoyed the exhibitions very much and learned a lot.

A small little garden you can walk around with a museum on the USA Mexican wars and a cafe at the end. Lovely to sit and take in the atmosphere.

Whilst in the area taking in the Palacio de Cibeles we stumbled across the Casa de America and we were so glad we did. Plenty of unique visuals to take in with an experience that I will not forget!

shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
