Havana Sights

Casa de la Obrapía

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

This house is named for the obra pía (pious work) with orphans that was carried out here in colonial times. Its elaborately wrought baroque doorway is thought to have been carved in Cádiz around 1686. The architecture of the interior patio is based on North African fondouks (inns) and, later, of Spanish corralas (patios). There's much to see here: arches of different sizes and shapes, vases decorated with paintings by Spanish painter Ignacio Zuloaga,

and a collection of Alejo Carpentier artifacts (including the car he used in Paris).
