Comandancia de la Policia Nacional Revolucionaria de la Habana (Habana Vieja)

                  Have you walked by this building and wondered what the heck it was, I know I have. Although it looks like a centuries old building, it's not 80 years old yet.
                  This structure or fort is home to the Command of the National Revolutionary Police of Havana. The building started out as the fortification of San Telmo in 1708 but after it's destruction it became the site of the Artillery Maenstranza, a cannon foundry and arsenal, until the construction of the current fort which was built in 1939.

Calle Cuba, e/ Tacón y Chacón,
La Habana Vieja. Havana.
