“Whimiscal community reminiscent of Gaudi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

This small residential area in middle class Havana has been transformed by the artist into a riot of colour and movement with his mosaic creation. Fences, facades, roofing, doors walls of houses, seats and street poles - nothing escapes the addition of colour and texture. A must see

“A beautiful neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

I've been to Jaimanitas often, and the neighborhood that Fuster has decorated is beautiful. Go, park, and take some time to wander the area and talk with the residents in addition to his home. The area is especially interesting in the evening, when the actual home is closed.

“This is much more impressive than Parc Guell”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

A hidden pearl in Havana, definitely a must see!! We were so lucky to meet Mr Fuster in person. He is definitely someone that makes a fifference to Havana and it's people. A spot that was extremely impressive, beautiful and that will be remembered by all of us. Also kids will adore this place.

“A Post-Revolutionary Partisan Artist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Very interesting and eclectic home and art studio of one of Cuba's current favored artists. The art is not cheap and it is unclear if Jose Fuster would be as famous if he was a dissident and not a post-revolutionary patriot (methinks not). Worth a visit, much of the neighborhood (walls, sidewalk benches, etc.) is done in interesting ceramics. And he's both a good salesman (served lobster to our group for lunch) and a local philanthropist (invited the neighborhood kids in to "beg" (but politely)). We had been told to take pencils, toiletries and such and the kids seemed genuinely needy and grateful.
