You can't miss el capitolio ... the national capital building. All the buildings around it are beautiful with. Rich history as well. The old cars parked up and down the strip add a real sense of time standing still. It took three years to build and the dome is amazing. It holds the worlds third largest statie. The inspiration from the dome came frimmthe Partheon in Paris. The gardens Are also worth a wander and sit. Can't miss it... so you will visit it

This was a central point in Havana, a large white building which looked like something from the large European cities like Rome, Paris and even Barcelona. It was the main place for government activity and definitely shows the connections this country has with Europe, the architectural design and visual look was definitely of European influence, it seems to be recently refreshed with bright coat of white paint or whitewash of some type over the existing building. It made for a great central location for which you could get directions from whenever you ask someone Where a place was they will tell you it's location in regards of distance from El Capitolio.

The capitol, recently restored, is stunning. As you walk through the building you can listen to recorded descriptions in English.
