This building has just been reopened after extensive restoration, and looks like new. I was luckily enough to get inside on the day of reopening without queuing for tickets, well worth the visit.

Simply astonishing and at the Centre of it all. Within walking distance of everywhere in Old Havana El Capitolio is very distinctive whether in the day or night.

Beautiful building and would have given a 5 except for the repairs underway. Sure looks like the Washington, DC one

You can go inside between 9-4pm. It's a stunning building but modern. Worth a short visit but nothing more.
