Cuban Architecture:Windows of Matanzas

20161023-DSC_0082.jpg

We saw some of the most beautiful architecture in Cube, but the poverty in the country makes it very hard to repair and maintain buildings. But I could tell there were days of glory somewhere in the country’s past. The old buildings had windows that opened to floor, as you see on this balcony. The shutters open and there is no glass so breezes can come in during the heat of tropical summers.
