Long Description:
Our pictures show the Museum of the Revolution and El Capitolio (neoclassical architecture style), the Great theatre of Havana (neo-baroque architecture style) and the architecture style in a Old Havana street.

Now home to the Cuban Academy of Sciences, El Capitolio was the seat of government in Cuba until after the Cuban Revolution in 1959. The bottom floor of the Capitolio Nacional is open to the public. This impressive building has become one of Havana’s most popular tourist attractions.

About the book: "The lucid, intelligent text and superb photographs shot exclusively for this book present the architectural treasures of the entire island, from the first India bohíos, early colonial structures, and Mudéjar craftsmanship to baroque churches, classically inspired civic buildings, ambitious modernist designs, and present-day preservation work. Now in this practical paperback edition, this unique reference source will be valued by architects, preservationists, historians, students, and armchair and actual travelers." (visit link)

The coordinates were taken in front of El Capitolio.
