Bacardi has such history in Havana although it's no longer located there. Fortunately, the building still stands as a tribute to their rum.

This is a beautiful building and luckily has not been destroyed by time and weather. Nice part of town for history.

A beautiful building and the former Headquarters of the Bacardi rum empire built in 1930. A must see close to Parque Central and one of many art deco buildings in Havana.

This was the main office of the family that owned the Bacardi Rum company- the outside is interesting -but inside the lobby you get a taste of how incredibly wealthy these people must have been (perhaps still are but they ain't in Cuba any more!).

If you like art deco, the Bacardi building is definitely worth a visit. It's just a few blocks away from the capitol building, El Floridita and Museo de Bellas Artes. The interior is a masterpiece of decorative art. Bring your camera!
