Arrive via Bicitaxi at El Capitolio, a public landmark often compared to the U.S. Capitol.

Steps to El Capitolio 

Explore Old Havana from the low-key, relaxed pace of a Bicitaxi before arriving at El Capitolio. Completed in 1929 and fully restored in recent years, this building held Cuba’s congress prior to the revolution in 1959.

We’ll learn about its construction, history – and get a look inside the halls of limestone and granite. And in the capitol’s apse, we’ll find the Statue of the Republic. This gigantic bronze monument is nearly 50 feet tall and among the world’s largest indoor statues.
