Currently being refurbished the theatre is closed. That being said the exterior of the building is something truly beautiful to behold, both in the daylight and at night. Statues adorn the domes at the four corners of the roof and the facades on the sides of the exterior walls are exquisite. Worth taking the time to peruse.

One of the best buildings in Cuba and currently under repair so we could not get in, but go and have a walk around.

... But breathtakingly beautiful on the exterior. Worth a walk by, and enjoy coffee at a sidewalk cafe while watching Classic cars buzz by. Smog is an issue in Havana (old cars and buses), so bring your inhaler :).

This is the most beautiful building in Havana, just across from the Central Park. Ballet presentations are held here, mainly at the end of the year and it will get packed because cubans love and admire ballet. Worth the picture.

Does anyone know if the renovations have been completed on the Gran Teatro? I stumbled across the last performance almost two years ago, and was told it would be closed for aprox. two years. Anyone??
