Bacardi Building, Havana

4.1
#39 of 200 in Things to do in Havana
Built in 1930, Bacardi Building is popular for its size and elegant Art Deco architecture. Once the largest building in the city, a group of architects originally designed this attraction for the Bacardi company. However, the popular rum manufacturer departed Cuba after the Cuban revolution, and the massive building has since been used for offices. Tourists are encouraged to stroll around the buidling, and Art Deco lovers should explore the interior as well. Ask about taking the elevator to the roof for sweeping views of the city.

  • 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..
