Habana - Capitolio Bld
Downtown Habana is quite spectacular with an array of beautiful old buildings, lots of public squares, boulevards, parks, gardens, theatres, museums and public buildings. The capitolio bld is the former parliament house used until the time of the revolution. It is similar in architecture and design to the capital bld in Washington. Today it is used for public meetings and as a museum. You can sit in the president's chair, as Fynn did, and roam around the spectacular foyer and the old Senate and Rep's chambers. The old parliamentary library has been turned into a free public library.
