About this spot
The Palacio de los Capitanes Generales, located in Havana, Cuba, is a significant historical building and former residence of the Spanish colonial governors (Captain Generals) of the island. Situated in the heart of Old Havana, this impressive Baroque-style structure dates back to the late 18th century. The building now houses the Museum of the City of Havana (Museo de la Ciudad), which showcases a vast collection of historical artifacts, artwork, and displays illustrating the city's rich cultural heritage and history.

Hotel Ambos Mundos is a historic hotel located in the heart of Old Havana, Cuba. Built in the 1920s, this iconic pink building boasts a unique blend of architectural styles, including Art Deco and Spanish Colonial elements. It is particularly famous for its association with American author Ernest Hemingway, who stayed at the hotel during the 1930s while writing some of his best-known works, including the first chapters of "For Whom the Bell Tolls."

Hotel Ambos Mundos boasts a rooftop bar and restaurant, providing visitors with a panoramic view of Old Havana and the opportunity to enjoy traditional Cuban cuisine.
