Casa Natal de José María de Heredia information
Lonely Planet review
A small museum illustrating the life of one of Cuba's greatest Romantic poets (1803–39) and the man after whom the street is named, José María de Heredia. Heredia's most notable work, 'Ode to Niagara', is inscribed outside, and attempts to parallel the beauty of Canada's Niagara Falls with his personal feelings of loss about his homeland. Like many Cuban independence advocates, Heredia was forced into exile, dying in Mexico in 1839.
