The building where the San Miguel Inn is placed, with the luxury of a palace, is located in the Historical Center of Havana City, just besides the Havanan Bay. Of eclectic style of the begining of the XX century, it was acquired in 1923 in public auction by Mr. Antonio San Miguel y Segalá, natural of Spain and Cuban citizen who was a distinguished Havanan, journalist, politician and merchant, the one who carried out some modifications that are still preserved.
Antonio San Miguel was the most popular director of all HavanaCity newspapers directors of end of the XIX century, he directed “La Lucha” newspaper, a true revolution in the progress of the journalism of the time in Cuba. Great friend of Maceo and of other many Cuban patriots that trusted him more than of many well-known Cubans, he constantly knew how to demonstrate his
feelings without making any bluff of them and wi thout abdicating his ideals for the great and noble causes, neither of his patriotic principles of love to the land that saw him born, Spain. In the 1895 revolution he was the correspondent and intermediate in the Havana of the general Antonio Maceo to whose wife had the responsibility to send her the money he sent. It may be affirmed that San Miguel knew how to create the biggest number of friends that any public man in Cuba have had. A soul full of nobility, altruism and generosity.
In the replublican time, as a prize of his valuable services, the Liberal Party makes him representative of the chamber for the Pinar del Río province.
