BIRTH HOUSE OF JOSÉ ANTONIO ECHEVERRÍA
It is located on Genas St. No.560 between Calzada and Colonel Verdugo, municipality of Cárdenas, only 10 miles away from the famous beach of Varadero.
This cultural institution was declared a National Monument since 1971 due to its historical and architectural values. Inside the building there are 983 objects on exhibit.
It has nine rooms, one of them decorated in a way that recreates the childhood period of José Antonio, exhibiting furniture that although did not originally belong to the family, it does date from that time.
Also quite notable for the visitor is the painter’s palette that he used as a child, his notebook with the addresses of envelope collectors, as well as the Chrysler automobile, manufactured in 1954 which he used for smuggling rifles and revolutionaries, while studying Architecture in the University of Havana, during the struggle against the regime of Fulgencio Batista.
