Havana Capitol – Parliament building of Cuba. The Capitol was built at the very beginning of the 20th century, now the parliament sits in another building, and the Capitol has been turned into a congress center. Tourists and visitors are now free to roam most of the building's corridors. Previously, no one but members of parliament was allowed there.
The building is made in the best traditions of the Renaissance, and partly repeats the outlines of the Capitol in Washington and St. Peter's Cathedral in the Vatican. The Capitol was built on the site of a drained swamp, where at one time there was a settlement of fugitive slaves.
At the entrance to the main building you can see a huge statue of a woman with a spear in her hand – this statue is the image of all Cuba,
