In November 2019, Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans traveled to Havana, Cuba for an exclusive study tour in historic preservation. The tour coincided with the 500th anniversary of the founding of the capital city.
We explored the status of historic preservation in Havana and special connections with the city of New Orleans. Travelers enjoyed official celebrations, a special tour of Old Havana’s historic plazas led by the renowned Dr. Isabel Rigol of the National Center of Conservation, Restoration, and Museology, and much more.
Our travelers got a chance to visit the newly renovated Rex Theater- Cuba’s first multiplex theater. Built on the iconic San Rafael Boulevard in 1938 and abandoned in 1980, the theater has been transformed into a working museum dedicated to restoring and preserving Havana’s famous neon signs of yesteryear. The center will be Cuba’s premiere institution, leading the neon restoration movement.
Select from one of our regular destinations or request a different host country for your program.
We will expertly design and execute your program from start to finish.
Thank you for an amazing experience. We were able to fundraise substantially from the trip, bump up our annual membership levels, and deliver a top-quality trip to tour-goers. Diaspora Travel gave access to Cuba to our constituents, many of whom had dreamed of visiting for years, but not had the ability to do so on their own. We made friends of the PRC for life thanks to this trip.
As an institution, we solidified relationships with architectural experts and professionals in Caribbean studies, which will further our own mission of protecting the architectural heritage of the northernmost Caribbean city- New Orleans. This was an invaluable opportunity.
