Video of Hemingway’s Cuba House

Looking into Hemingway’s Cuba house, Finca la Vigia, is like being there a half century ago. Little has changed; you feel like he might step back into the bedroom to write on his typewriter. Furniture, trophy heads, even magazines remain as when he occupied the home.

See my page on Hemingway’s House and other Top Things to do in Havana.

Ernest Hemingway’s Cuba house was built in 1886, bought by him in 1940, and abandoned by him in 1960 after the Revolution. It sat vacant for years, and was later opened as a museum.

In this video you can take a look at his beautiful open-air home, his bedroom with typewriter, his cat cemetery next to the pool, and his old wooden boat Pilar. Also see Hemingway’s favorite bars, El Floridita and La Bodequita.
