Comments

1994 minted in Canada, rest of the years in Havana

The colonial house is a very common construction in every town and city of Cuba, even at Havana. Many of those were built in the 15th to 19th centuries, and are in good conservation conditions. Some of them are museums, like the house of Diego Velázquez, 1st governor of Cuba and founder of 7 towns. His house was built about 1516/1530 and is a museum where are shown articles, furniture and decorations of different ages, from 1500 to 1900.
