Cuba's clone of Washington's Capitol building is a glorious architectural tribute
Modeled on Washington’s Capitol building, Cuba’s Capitolo is every bit as impressive. From viewing Italian sculptor Angelo Zanelli’s massive bronze statue inside the foyer to wandering through the curved hallways to the former House of Representatives, the building is an aesthetic delight.
The seat of government is now in buildings surrounding the Plaza de la Revolución but many of the ornate anterooms still host conferences.
