El Capitolio, Havana, Cuba
Written by: Sandra Baksh
El Capitolio (the National Capitol) in Havana, is almost a replica of The Capitol, in Washington, DC, in the United States. It was built over three years and completed in 1929, under the former dictator, Gerardo Machado. It used to be the location of the Cuban Congress until 1959, when The Revolution occurred. It is currently under restoration and would not be open to the public until sometime in 2018.
