  • This building is very Historic.. It was built in 1925 as the Miami News Building. Then it was the processing location of the Cubans coming into the U.S.  more »
  • A tower is beautiful, which we had to do on a daily basis since it was our transition from the city of Miami to Miami Beach where we stayed. In addition to being a place with lots of history and significance for Cubans who arrived in the country, it is an architectural Marvel and has a magnificent view, it is impossible not to see it if you are on Biscayne Blvd.
