  • Description

    Centro Gallego de La Habana (Galician Center of Havana).

    One of the architectural jewelry of Havana is placed in front of Parque Central, next to Capitolio Nacional and it is the Gran Teatro de La Habana. At the beginnings it was named Tacón and it was inaugurated in 1915 in the building which belonged to the Centro Gallego de La Habana.

    Two aspects emerge from this institution, the first class art showed there, with outstanding personalities during its history (Sara Bernhardth, Enrico Caruso, Alicia Alonso), and the incredible neo-baroque façade of the building with the signature of the Belgian architect Paul Belau, and decorated by other international sculptors, which can be seen in its four sides covering a whole block between Consulado, San Rafael, San Martín and Prado streets.

    Between seat and circles, the capacity of its main hall, named Federico García Lorca, is for two thousand people. Other two halls of a lower capacity formed part of the great cultural center, as well as, art galleries and other small premises for different artist companies which have their space there (National Ballet of Cuba, National Opera, etc).

    Moreover, not only in its façade there are evidences of its exquisiteness, but also its indoors halls show the luxury and elegance of the time. Its stages have shown the better artistic representations of all times. There, the prestigious International Ballet Festival is held every two years where the most relevant worldwide personalities of this art have an excellent opportunity for meetin

  • Havana Airport

    José Martí International Airport (IATA: HAV, ICAO: MUHA), sometimes known by its former name Rancho-Boyeros Airport, is located 15 km (9 mi) southwest of Havana, Cuba, and is a hub for Cubana de Aviación, Aerogaviota, and Aero Caribbean, and former Latin American hub for Aeroflot Soviet Airlines.[2] It is Cuba's main international and domestic gateway, and serves several million passengers each year. The airport lies in the municipality of Boyeros and connects Havana with the rest of the Caribbean, North, Central and South America, Europe, and one destination in Africa. It is named in memory of patriot and poet José Martí. In the 1960s the airport was bombed by B-26 aircraft from Brigade 2506, a CIA-sponsored group of Cuban exiles attempting to liberate Cuba from Fidel Castro. Cubans are not allowed to own aircraft or use the airport for either private or commercial flight. Only government-owned aircraft are allowed to use the facilities. There are currently four passenger terminals in use at the airport, plus a freight terminal.[3] Terminal 1 is used primarily for domestic flights. Terminal 2 opened in 1988, primarily for charter flights to the United States. Ten years later on April 27, 1998, the International Terminal 3 was opened by Canada's then-Prime Minister, Jean Chrétien, and former Cuban president, Fidel Castro. International Terminal 3 offers many modern facilities and jetways that the former international Terminal 1 did not provide. Terminal 5 is operated by Aerocaribbean. Today, Copa Airlines is the foreign airline with most flights to the airport, operating 34 flights a week (roughly 5 daily flights) from Panama City, Panama, and Bogota, Colombia. The airport is operated by Empresa Cubana de Aeropuertos y Servicios Aeronáuticos (ECASA).

  • Gran Teatro de La Habana is located in Havana
  • Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.

    The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.

    The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.

    Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.

    Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

      “Wouldn't it be nice... ”
      Jumped off the double-decker bus during a 15 minute pause to see if we could get tickets to something. Walked all around the building. Bad luck...in restoration (until when?). But an incredible building from the outside. Lucky to get back on the tour bus. Someday. Wouldn't it be nice...

      “Beautiful building ”
      On my visit in October 2014 the building was closed for restoration. It is a beautiful example of European architecture ( I am no expert in periods so I can not say which period this architecture represents) and it is worth a visit.

      This is the most beautiful building in Havana, just across from the Central Park. Ballet presentations are held here, mainly at the end of the year and it will get packed because cubans love and admire ballet. Worth the picture.

      Does anyone know if the renovations have been completed on the Gran Teatro? I stumbled across the last performance almost two years ago, and was told it would be closed for aprox. two years. Anyone??

      “Gorgeous architecture ”
      Like the rest of old Havana, everything is covered either with scaffolds that are covered by overgrown tree trunks as renovations take a lifetime to complete or by some other means of scaffolds. This beautiful grand lady had her exterior covered with scaffolds hence we could not fully appreciate her in her true nature. She was still full of grandeur.

      “Being renovated ”
      I have had the pleasure of visiting the Gran Teatro on many occasions. I have seen the wonderful world class ballets. The Gran Teatro is now being renovated and its suppose to open again sometime during the summer 2014. Somehow I think it will take longer.
