  • Facing the West side of the Plaza de Armas old Spain viceroy's House and executive branch, now the Municipal Museum; It is a splendid building on wood tile laid in front of the building, a stately gate, wider patio with. To see the exhibition divided into each room, up the marble stairs to the mezzanine, second floor, around. Parish, garage, Office, room, art room, Armory, dormitory, and hero's room, etc. Among exhibits of uniforms for each era along with arsenal was decorated nice, garage coach, machetes, are memorable. The location where you want to watch closely as time permits.

  • Former residence of Cuban Governors, now a museum. The mansion had a very beautiful garden courtyard, a statue of Columbus and the live peacocks. Worth a stroll through the mansion and enjoy the luxuries of colonial interiors.

  • Incredible restoration of the former Casino Espanol. Wonderful acoustics, too.
  • Some sort of office where they perform civil weddings. Great place to sit across on Prado Boulevard and see the beautiful cars with happy couples on their way to marriage!
