Trip Planner: Caribbean / Cuba / Ciudad de la Habana Province / Havana / Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales
Admire the architecture and get a glimpse of Havana through the centuries at Palacio De Los Capitanes Generales. Formerly the governor's residence, today this late 18th-century Cuban Baroque building houses the city museum. Admire its ornate limestone facade and stained glass windows, then step inside to view exhibits of period furniture, artworks, clothes, weapons, ceramics, and more. Wander the picturesque courtyard, where peacocks roam freely around a statue of Columbus. Plan my Havana trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

One of the most amazing places I've visited. There is just something about the architecture with the greenery that feels so nice to look at. I couldn't stop taking pictures. I enjoyed the place and the interior more than the furniture but the artifacts are still worth it and they're very well placed with good attention to detail. I recommend it as a must visit to get to know more about the architecture and the local history.
A nice stop to slow down and take in the sights, with photo opportunities at every corner. There are a lot of vendors and Cuban people close by, with a park directly across the street. There is a lot of history and its relatively cheap for what you get, so take your time and enjoy.
