American author, Ernest Hemingway's Cuban hideaway has won a place on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's list of most endangered places.
Hemingway spent more than 20 years at the home near Havana, where he wrote "The Old Man and the Sea." Time and the elements have severely damaged the hacienda, called Finca Vigia, or Lookout Farm."
The house's roof is leaking, the foundation is crumbling and plaster is falling off the walls. But evidence of the author remains, including a daily record of his weight and blood pressure penciled on the bathroom wall.
The Hemingway Preservation Foundation was denied a government license last year to travel to Cuba. The Bush administration has taken a tough stance on visits to the communist-run island.
