Few places are as fascinating as Cuba, which has been a magnet to travellers ever since Columbus 'discovered' it in 1492. Magnificently evoking the romance and drama as well as darker episodes of slavery and tyranny, this selection of journal entries, essays and guidebook commentaries begins by transporting the reader back to the days when Havana sheltered Caribbean pirate treasure ships and was the gateway to the Spanish Empire in the New World. Filled with the flavour and manners of bygone eras, these fascinating tales offer a glimpse into the history and beauty of Cuba.
