Its rooms, terraces, restaurants and gardens have witnessed significant historical events of Cuban political, social and cultural life since the times of the false republic — due to the interference of foreign interests — to the period of intense revolutionary transformations after 1959. Such events and the profiles of its most conspicuous visitors are registered in the present book, which does not aim to be a historic monograph, but a living collection of chronicles and sketches that reveal the connection of the emblematic tourist facility with the pulse of its era.
