The place where Hemingway found inspiration… and met his death.
For Whom The Bells Toll.
The Vigía Farm (Finca Vigía) was Ernest Hemingway's one and true permanent residence. Since 1940, up to his tragic death in 1961, he found the perfect retreat some 15 kilometers away from the Cuban capital, where he had the necessary solitude to write a great deal of his works. "For Whom the Bells Toll," "The Old Man and the Sea," "Across the River and Into the Trees" "A Moveable Feast," and "Islands in the Stream" are some of the works that the literary figure wrote on this 10-acre farm. Today it's a museum that pays homage to the winner of the 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature. The interior of his house, his popular bungalow, his tower and boat are all on display and open to the public at this location. Most importantly, his impressive library and study are open to the public as well.
