The Bacardi building is a working office so you will not be able to enter it but is nevertheless a very interesting place to see in Havana. This old and prettybuilding was built in 1930 and is a wonderful example of the architecture of that era.
Intricately designed and built, it is a sight worth seeing in the city of Havana. If you find Art Deco architecture interesting, this one is certainly for you. The towering structure on top is certainly quite impressive and the several windows give the reddish building a very lovely and rustic sort of a look. If you are lucky you might on occasion be able to the top of the tower to get wonderful views of the surrounding area of the place.
- For a price of 1 CUC, tourists are very occasionally let inside the building. But this depends on chance.

You certainly can walk up and get some amazing views from the top. Just take the elevator up as far as you can, then the stairs the rest of the way. There's a security guard who's pretty great at finding you on asking for money or not letting you up. Make sure you bring some small denomination bills so you can say that's all you've got. Otherwise he keeps asking for more..
Art Deco building showing the magnificence of the old Cuba. Get in take a minute to see around and then climb to the topfloor with the elevator. few stairs up and you will have one of the best views in La Havana!
Beautiful and decadent, and sadly not open for visits at time of writing
If you are really lucky you can walk past just before sunset and get invited in. For just 1 US dollar the security guard will let you go to the top and you can watch the beautiful sunset over Habana. Best experiance of any of my 4 trips to Cuba.
Beautiful building and well maintained.
