5 must-visit libraries, theaters and a cultural palace in Havana
1) Library of the Economic Society of Friends of the Country
The overall message of this building is one of austerity, conveyed by the lofty portico and the rectangular volume with only a few openings. The book depot tower which has rows of windows, which resemble slits, serves as the rear façade. The building has an inviting, central patio full of lush greenery. Built by Govantes and Cabaroccas.
