Casa-Museo Polo Montañez

Museum in Las Terrazas

The former lakeside house of local guajiro musician Polo Montañez, regarded as one of Cuba’s finest-ever folk singers, is now a small museum containing various gold records and assorted memorabilia. It’s right in Las Terrazas village, overlooking the lake.

Polo’s most famous songs include ‘Guajiro Natural’ and ‘Un Montón de Estrellas’; they captured the heart of the nation between 2000 and 2002 with simple lyrics about love and nature. His stardom was short-lived, however: he died in a car accident in 2002.
