Sightseeing in Cuba

Capitol Building
“The structure displays a blend of Neoclassical and Art Nouveau styles and was the seat of government until 1959, after the Cuban Revolution. Currently, it's undergoing a major restoration to prepare it as the new home for Cuba's Communist parliament. However, it remains a striking landmark for those wandering around Havana; its huge dome is visible from almost anywhere in the city.”

“Even without any artifact to display, the Museum of the City of Havana would remain an unmissable visit, courtesy of the opulent Palace in which it resides. The Palace of the Captains General is the most important building of the Plaza de Armas and one of the most representative works of baroque architecture in Latin America. It dates from the 1770s and is a manual of Cuban Baroque architecture, carved in rock extracted from the nearby San Lázaro quarries. Occupying the entire west side of the plaza, the palace stands on the site of the demolished Parroquia Mayor, the first church in Havana.”

““The Director’s Kids” is a contemporary dance company that does original, interesting work. The company debuted in 2013 and, thanks to the creativity of its choreographers, quickly achieved tremendous success. They’re based from the 9th floor of the National Theatre of Cuba. It’s an older building, so call ahead to make sure the elevator is working.”
