This institution honors Ecuadorian painter Oswaldo Guayasamín (1919-1999), a dedicated socialist, supporter of the Cuban Revolution, and close friend to Fidel Castro. It’s located in an 18th-century mansion that originally belonged to the Peñalver family; Guayasamín was present in 1993 for the opening of this art gallery and museum in his honor.
It displays many of his paintings and sculptures, as well as furniture and other miscellany relating to when he lived here and used it as a studio. The upper floor has murals painted by renowned 18th-century Cuban painters José Nicolás de la Escalera and José Andrés Sánchez.
