Here is an amazing hidden gem in Key West, Florida. Instituto San Carlos. I received full permission to photograph the entire thing, but this room was my favorite.

“The San Carlos is one of Florida’s most beautiful and historic landmarks. It was founded in 1871 by Cuban exiles of Key West as an educational, civic, and patriotic center.

It was at the San Carlos that José Martí united the exile community in 1892 to launch the final phase of his campaign for Cuba’s independence. Martí so loved the San Carlos that he called it “La Casa Cuba”.
