Havana.- The main facilities of the National Capitol, in the Cuban capital, were reopened to the public after extensive restoration works.
The building, which is the current seat of the Cuban Parliament, has attractions such as the Hall of Lost Steps, which is 120 meters in length and a dome that is 91 meters high.
It also houses the sculpture La República (The Republic), which is 15 meters tall and is considered the third largest statue indoors in the world.
There are also salons such as Yara, where beautiful pieces of original dishes are on display; Jimaguayú, with sculptures by the Italian artist Angelo Zanelli, and Baraguá, which is intended for meetings.
The Capitol also has a crypt that keeps the remains of the unknown mambi (Cuban fighters for independence against Spain), which is accompanied by the flags of all the nations of the American continent.
