My first visit to Havana and I was surprised to see such a magnificent building. Lit up at night we had a spectacular view of it from our hotel rooftop terrace. Beautiful restored with numerous bars and cafes and parks close by

Gran Teatro de La Habana is an impressive building in Havana. It is heavily decorated with sculptures in marble and bronze. The front displays white marble sculptures by Giuseppe Moretti that represent charity, education, music and theater.

A few tours during the day. Takes you into the main auditorium and then the Venetian rooms. The latter with an art exhibition. Absolutely fab building and interesting tour. Next to capitol building. Open Monday’s when many places aren’t. Great views. 5 cuc.
