This once-elegant European-style covered shopping mall was built in 1910 and was once the pride of polite Havana society. By the 1990s it had degenerated into a haunted version of Gotham City full of empty-shelved shops. It has subsequently been taken over by a Swiss hotel group who are in the process of returning it to its former glory complete with shops and a five-star hotel.
