The Casa de las Américas House is a cultural center located in Calle G Street, next to El Malecón of Havana, in the quarter of Vedado. This cultural center was founded by Haydée Santamaría, survivor of the assault to Moncada in 1959. Its objectives are to investigate, support, reward and publish the labor of writers, musicians, theater practitioners, and other artists from the continent.

Nowadays, it is a meeting point and forum for dialogue of innovative ideas in a unique atmosphere. The house exchanges with institutions from all over the world, and celebrates temporary exhibitions, as well as concerts and interesting events.

The foundation is quite important in Cuba, since during the period when all the Latin American governments (except Mexico) severed relations with Cuba, the foundation tried to avoid the total destruction of the connection between Cuba and the rest of cultures.

Its interior houses an art gallery and a bookshop, both in an intellectual atmosphere.

Nowadays the institution is leaded by the poet Roberto Fernández Retamar.
