Hemingway and His Romance With Cuba

Ernest Hemingway, famous adventurer, journalist and writer, who made the expression, ‘The Lost Generation’, famous, lived out some of the most significant parts of his life in Cuba, and there is no doubt that he loved their shores. He started visiting the country as a favorite tourist spot in the ’30s, and later established residence there, first in Hotel Ambos Mundos and later purchasing his house, the Finca Vigia. He resided in Finca Vigia in with his third wife, Martha Gellhorn, within 1941-45, as well as his last wife after Martha, Mary Welsh Hemingway. One quirk of his time in Finca Vigia was that he had learned to love and raise many cats there.
