My favourite building in Havana: The Palacio de los Capitanes Generales

Plaza de Las Armas is where you’ll find my favourite building in all of Havana, the Palacio de los Capitanes Generales. The square-shaped palacio is built around a central courtyard home to a couple of free roaming peacocks and houses the Museo de la Ciudad, or the Museum of the City of Havana. It is a gorgeous, sun-drenched buildings with wide, wrap around marble verandas overlooking the courtyard and its two extremely tall palm trees. Walking around the building, one can imagine what it must have been like living here back in Havana’s glory days.
