Asociación Cultural Yoruba de Cuba

Asociación Cultural Yoruba de Cuba Review

The Asociación Cultural Yoruba provides a close look at African culture. The bigger-than-life orishas (Yoruban deities) on display are all identified and explained in English, French, and Spanish. The entry fee is steep compared with those of other museums, but paying it makes you an association member—hence, you'll be invited to all lectures and dance and music events. The association is near the Parque de la Fraternidad Americana, a shady space around a sacred ceiba tree planted in 1928 with soil from each of the free countries of the Americas.
