From the roof of the Bacardi building we had a wonderful view of Havana and the roof was full laundry, antennes and water reservoirs. The Bacardi building in Havana is located on Avenida de Belgica 261 between Empedrado and San Juan de Dios in Old Havana. The building was designed by the architects Rafael Fernández Ruenes, Esteban Rodríguez Castell and Jose Menendez for the Bacardi rum company.
The art deco building was completed in 1930 and was at that time the largest building in Havana. After the Cuban revolution and the departure of Bacardi from Cuba the building remained in use as an office. The renovation of the exterior was almost finished and the building looked lovely. The entrance was beautifully decorated with marble and stained glass. We were shocked on the top floor of the poor state of repair. The balcony was full of cracks so we didn`t dare leaning against the edge.
