At its height, there were 27 homes here.  Today only 7 structures remain, each with its own name, personality, and history.

Hecho A Mano: Creativity in Exile

Hecho a Mano: Creativity in Exile weaves together the stories of four Cuban artists now living in Miami.

Francisco “Paquito” Hechavarría played piano for some of Cuba’s biggest bands and was a regular performer at the Fontainebleau when the likes of Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis graced the stage there in the 1960s.
