The Splendor of Cuba – An Architectural Retrospective Half-a-Millennium in the Making

A one-hour documentary for broadcast television also suitable for webcasting, downloading as digital movies and retail sales. The program will highlight historic Cuban architecture and interior design from the first structures built around 1500 to the present. Cuba is the only Caribbean island showcasing every example of traditional classical architecture, a collection that has been called the most beautiful and significant in all the Americas.

The program will be hosted by Dr. Michael Connors, a celebrated authority on Cuba, its art, culture, and history.
