This beautiful building is in the main square in Habana Vieja, and is architecturally very impressive. It's just around the corner from lots of other great buildings, like the Capitol.

It's situated right next to the Capitolia. The building itself is amazing. The outside is beautiful and the inside is grandeur. We saw the zarzuela Cecilia Valdés in the Gran Teatro. We don't speak Spanish well enough to be able to understand everything but it still amazing. It was a great experience.

Near the capitol and central park, this building has an amazing exterior which comes even more alive at night. Hopefully you find yourself in this part of Havana, and while I did not take the tour, I kind of wish I would have as the glimpse inside made me think the interior may be as spectacular as the exterior.

This gorgeous building is located on the Paseo del Prado. Construction began in 1908 ad was financed by donations from Galician emigrants. It opened with an opera season in 1915. The extensive details of this beautiful building are beyond words. Definitely worth a stop, even if you don't go for a performance.

What a beautiful building situated near the Capitol and across from Parque Central. Luckily, it seems as though the building has been restored which is a good thing so we all have the opportunity to marvel over it.

Because my husband is an avid opera fan and because I love architecture and history, I made it a priority to visit the Gran Teatro de La Habana. It does not show opera performances but rather other fine arts, particularly ballet. Placido was scheduled to perform at the Gran Teatro but his performance was interrupted by the mourning of the...

We sadly didn't spend nearly enough time in Havana (there is way more than a day trip, try to spend a couple nights there!) but thankfully we took the time to be toured around the theatre. The tour guide was a passionate dancer herself and was excited to share with us the history of the theatre and dancers in Cuba.... More

Teatro Nacional is a beautiful symbol of Cuba in it's prime, inside and out! I recommend walking by here both during the day and at night to adore this piece of work! Even if there is no show, you can tour the beautiful building for only $7 CUC! This place is a MUST!

We visited Cuba in a cruise so it was not possible to get tickets for the ballet, I was just so happy to tour the building. It is majestic. The original design is beautiful, and in recent years it was expanded and restored. Marble columns, floors and stairs bring beauty and splendor. It takes approximately 70-90 minutes to tour el...
