Palacio del Condé de Lombillo - Older guide books have the market as being here just under the palace's windows, but this is all that is left.

Palacio del Condé de Lombillo Mar 18, 2017
The palacio is right on the corner of Cathedral square as you are leaving the church, with the entrance just along calle Empedrado. Built in 1741, it was used as an office and as the Museum of Pedagogy. Down through the years it was passed through the hands of descendants of some of the original settlers in Havana, and only became the "Casa del Conde de Lombillo" when Joseph Lombillo married into the Pedroso family. There are now temporary exhibitions on the ground floor and on the first two large rooms have been renovated and house some beautiful Sevres, Limoges and some Italian ceramics and pottery.

It was also home to the first historian of Havana and now holds the offices of the "History of Old Havana".

From the first floor there is a good view of the square and from the other side to the giant Cristo statue the other side of the river.

Open Mon - Fri, 9h00 - 18h00 and Sat 9h00 - 13h00. Entrance is free, but a small donation is expected to the guides, although they don't even try to explain anything. (1CUC is enough)
