Capitolio

The Capitolio is located in the quarted called Centro Habana, just next to the old city. Ironically, the building is almost an exact replica of the Washington DC Capitol building, only a tad bigger and better decorated. It was stared in the 1920s, when Cuba was a US colony in all but name, and under the orders of the dictator Gerardo Machado. It was originally built as the home of Cuban Congress, which found itself obsolete after Castro's Revolution; now it is the home of the National Library of Science and Technology.
