we decided to end our cuban experience with a ballet. It was only 15 cucs + 5 for taxi to the theatre (cucs same as euro when we were there) It is a shame that the ballet is so far out and obviously why there was not a full house. But the atmosphere, the dance, the music were brilliant. Even... More

This absolutely stunning building stands in Parque Central adjacent to El Capitolio and must not be missed on any trip to Havana. Now on our visit the exterior was still having some work carried out, around ground floor level and we understand that there was extensive refurbishment works going on inside, so we decided to admire from the outside only....

The exterior architectural work of this building is nothing short of breathtaking. I regret not going inside, but since I was short on time I had to settle with seeing it from the outside. I hear the interiors are being renovated, so right now an inside tour is not really worth it....so maybe you should hold up as well. But... More

The Gran Teatro de La Habana is a gorgeous, fairytale castle of a building on Parque Central. It is well worth going to take a look. At night, it is lit up, adding to its magical quality. The theatre is home, amongst other things, to Cuba's world renowned National Ballet. I had been looking forward to seeing it perform and... More

When visiting Habana you will always end up at the Capitol because every taxi driver will want to take you there and all tour busses end up there. But although impressive cross the street to Parque Central, find a bench in the shade and look to the right of the Capitol. Because there stands the Gran Teatro in all its... More

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.

Did not enter the Teatro bud did enjoy its beautiful architecture both during the day and lit up at night. Lots of activity in this bustling square.

... 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 :).
