Architectural Building · Historic Site
Take a step back in time at Casa de la Amistad, a luxurious 1920s mansion that now serves as a restaurant and concert venue. For a brief time after it was built in 1926, this elegant mansion was home to landowner Juan Pedro Baro and Catalina Lasa, who scandalized Havana with their love affair. Admire the mansion's lovely interior of marble tables and floors, mirror walls, and iron window grills over a tasty yet inexpensive dinner. Most evenings, you will find salsa, reggae, or rock bands playing on the patio.
