The Capitol Building is magnificent. Used as the seat of government until 1959, it now houses the Cuban Academy of Sciences but will soon become the home of the Cuban Parliament.
Passeo de Marti, or simply known as The Prado, is a lovely promenade. Stretching for blocks, it divides Central Havana from Old Havana.
Revolution Square, constructed in 1920, is the political and administrative center of Havana. Although the gigantic image of Che Guevera on Ministry of the Interior Building speaks to the revolutionary nature of the square, the true dominating feature is the 357 foot tall Jose Marti Memorial. Marti was a writer, poet and is considered a hero to the Cuban people.
This tour would not be complete without visiting 2 very important synagogues in the city. Patronato Synagogue is the largest in Havana with impressive architecture. Temple Beth Shalom was built in 1952 and is considered the headquarters of the Jewish Cuban community.
We'll stop by the prestigious Nacional Hotel, the iconic symbol of Cuban history culture and identity. This imposing building in the center of Havana stands high on a hill with outstanding views of the Havana Harbor and the Caribbean Sea. You'll enjoy a complimentary drink here as you relax and admire the ambiance of your surroundings.
