There are many Art Deco building in Havana, but most are in very bad conditions, some even defaced or unrecognisable. Not the Bacardi building though: with its bat on the top, it is perfectly preserved (or restored) and it is an architectural gem. Pity we...More

This building is beautiful and very well maintained. Just a couple of blocks from the main plaza, art deco at its best.

Art deco style building famous by their owners. A bit crowded and noisy around it but a landmark which needs to be visited.

It is an office, where employees work. Visitors can just go into the lobby, there is nothing much to see in the lobby though.

This building back in the 1950's was probably one of the biggest in the area. It was hug with the words Bacardi written across the header above the entrance to the building.
