Another classic building in old Havana. You get to go past this building on most tours of old Havana. Don't think that you can go inside.

Our tour guide took us past this building and explained to us the historical significance behind it. I am no sure if tourists are permitted inside?

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.
