Journey to Havana recounts the return to that city of the Countess of Merlin. Cuban by origin, the Countess of Merlin, whose full name is María de las Mercedes Santa Cruz y Montalvo, had lived in Europe since she was young.
She was widowed in 1839, in 1840 she returned to Cuba and wrote Viaje a La Habana. It was a controversial book. He was accused of plagiarizing Cirilo Villaverde, José Antonio Saco, and Ramón de Palma.
Félix Tanco y Bosmeniel was one of his main detractors with his Refutation of the pamphlet entitled Viaje a La Habana, published in 1844. On the opposite side were Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, who wrote the preface to this edition, and Gabriel de la Concepción Valdés, who dedicated a sentimental ode to his departure from Havana in 1840.
In this book, the author’s gaze towards an almost exotic and at the same time close country is confused with childhood memories and emotions:

“For some hours I have been motionless, breathing the embalmed air that comes from that blessed land of God … Cheers, the charming and virginal island! Cheers, beautiful homeland of mine! In the beating of my heart, in the trembling of my bowels, I know that neither distance nor years have been able to warm my first love. I love you, and I couldn’t tell you why; I love you without asking the cause, as the mother loves her son, and the son loves his mother; I love you without giving myself, and without wanting to realize it, for fear of diminishing my bliss. When I breathe this perfumed breath that you send, and I feel it slip sweetly through my head, I shiver to the marrow of my bones, and I think I feel the tender impression of the motherly kiss.”

This is how Journey to Havana begins, the author is excited when she arrives in her land.
