El Capitolio is the beautiful National Capitol Building of Havana. The building stands for the government of Cuba and has tremendous political importance as a result of this. The domed structure is a very pretty sight to see in the city.
The interiors are no less interesting. The “La Estatua de la República” sculpture is worth noting. It is the world’s third largest statue that is inside a building. The sprawling hallways are carved and decorated intricately and there is a lot to see.
In short the building not only has great significance for the country, it is also Havana’s pride as a lovely tourist destination.

El Capitolio Havana Or National Capitol Building Reviews & Ratings
we were on a cruise holiday me and my wife had a ride in one of the cars our driver took us around and stopped near each place one of the stops was here the capitol building is a beautiful thing you have to see if you visit Havana
Very important historical building in Havana, said to be patterned after the capitol building in Washington DC. This building also contains the world's third largest indoor statue. A must visit if in Havana.
The statues on the sides have a cool story.
That's a monumental and iconic building marking km 0 in Havana, Cuba
This iconic building is the old Parliament house built in 1930s, under the era of USA intervention. So the outlook was really a copy from the White House in D.C. Washington. After revolution, it housed the Department of Science and Technology but now it was renovated to function as National Assembly in the future. Before renovation, visitors are allow to visit inside. At the entrance, there is a huge bronze statue. The grand entrance hall with marble colonnades are very impressive and also all the highly decorated rooms.
