A Look at the Streets of Santiago de Cuba, which is the second largest City of Cuba and Capital city of Santiago de Cuba Province in the south-eastern area of the Island, some 870 km south-east of the Cuban capital of Havana.
El Capitolio, or National Capitol Building in Havana, Cuba, was the seat of government in Cuba until after the Cuban Revolution in 1959, and is now home to the Cuban Academy of Sciences. Its design and name recall the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., but it is only superficially similar. Completed in 1929, it was the tallest building in Havana until the 1950s and houses the world’s third largest indoor statue.
One of the first Landmarks we’ve visited in Cuba was Valle de Viñales in the province Pinar del Rio. The valley has an area of 132 km². Tobacco and other crops are cultivated on the bottom of the valley, mostly by traditional agriculture techniques. (Panorama has been stitched with Hugin.)
