Description
Early sample of an l8th century mansion, finished in 1737 by the father of the would-be Count of Jaruco. Porch, arches, vestibule and porch, courtyard, galleries, carved wooden ceilings, stained-glass windows and mezzanines stand out in it. It belonged to the Counts of Jaruco and Mopox up to the 19tb century. It deteriorated during this century for it was dilapidated into dwelling apartments, even an apparel workshop operated in it. Restored in 1979, today it is the head office of the Cuban Fund of Cultural Properties. It is one of the most valuable buildings in the Old Square (Plaza Vieja) and one of the most important works of the Cuban architecture of the 18th century. Its architecture highlights the frieze in the different halls, whose inner yards with spacious galleries and pleasant proportions, is one of the most delightful of the Cuban colonial architecture.
