Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales, Havana

4.6
Admire the architecture and get a glimpse of Havana through the centuries at Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales. Formerly the governor's residence, today this late 18th-century Cuban Baroque building houses the city museum. Admire its ornate limestone facade and stained glass windows, then step inside to view exhibits of period furniture, artworks, clothes, weapons, ceramics, and more. Wander the picturesque courtyard, where peacocks roam freely around a statue of Columbus. Plan my Havana trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • This museum carries centuries of history headquarters the Spanish era up to the US administration. There is a statue of Cristóbal Colón which in my opinion few that are in Cuba so you don't overlook in worshipping the discoverer of Cuba. There are beautiful rooms and one in particular where several flags are treasure. You can feel when closing the eyes as in other times.
