Cuban Poetess’ House Declared a National Monument

The house where 19th century Cuban poetess, Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, was born was declared a National Monument on the 500th anniversary of the establishment of Santa María del Puerto del Príncipe, today known as Camagüey. 

Cuban National Monument and Cultural Heritage Council President, Gladys Collazo, said that the building’s distinctive features, architectural and historical values were taken into account for the declaration on Monday.

Considered the first romantic poetess in the Spanish speaking world, Gómez de Avellaneda was also a talented playwright and novelist and an exceptional human being who intensely and passionately defended women’s rights.
