Capitolio, Havana

One of the largest buildings in the Cuban capital is the Capitolio, which is a replica of Washington D.C.’s Capitol. This Neo-Classical structure was once a congressional building. The diamond inset in the floor is the point from which all distances are measured in Cuba. This building was inaugurated in 1929 and incorporates Art Deco elements into a Neo-Classical design. It reopened in 2014, after restoration, and now hosts the National Assembly.
