After our formal organized tour, we drove past the Capitol and when we had free time, opted to walk back to explore Old Havana on our own. Although we did not tour the Captiol, we did walk around and visited several shops and bars along...More

Not sure if the fence is down around it but would be great to go in this structure. So strange see a rough copy of our wedding cake capitol. Very beautiful. Wish they would clean the grounds up and do some serious landscaping.

This is a must see if you have the chance. The building is breathtaking. We had an excellent guide and enjoyed the 1 hour tour. WARNING: the information you can get even from the guards is quite loose, so here it goes for you to...More

Not necessarily a must see stop but its generally incorporated into most city tours. Mirrored after Washington DC, only on a much smaller scale. Exterior was being renovated so we did not get to go inside.

Go inside for real history and experience. It is lovely outside but you really must see what has happened here! Good shopping area to the right of the Capitolia past the opera/music building and past Hotel Inglaterra

Looks much better now than it did a few years ago. Still slowly being cleaned and renovated. You can see the US influence on the design.

When I was there they just finished modernizing the capital. We were the first people to be allowed inside because our guide knew the guard and the chambers are exquisite.

El Capitolio rennovation finished on June 2018. I visited the building just 9 days after it opened doors to the PUBLIC and it worths its expensive entrance (10 euro). The dom , the statue the Parliament and all the side exhibits give a taste that...More
