NATAL HOUSE OF RUBÉN MARTÍNEZ VILLENA
It is one of the buildings that was declared a National Monument due to its historical importance, located on Avenue 91 number 8 427, in Alquilar, in the southwest of Havana. Here Rubén Martínez Villena was born, who fought for social improvement in the country during the thirties decade of the past century.
Typical walls and wooden flooring, tile roofs, earth patio and portal, were details of the house that Luciano Martínez, his father, won in a contest to obtain a position as a teacher.
On January 16th of 1950 Juan Marinello, representing the Popular Socialist Party (Partido Socialista Popular), unveiled the honorary plaque that rediscovers and identifies from that moment on, the birthplace of this historical figure. The Museum-House opened its doors to the public on January 16th of 1976 and became the first institution of this nature in Havana Province.
