Interesting Facts:
The Governor of Havana started the construction of a building meant to be the house of the Provincial Government. But Mariana Seba, First Lady of the Republic, liked the building and convinced her husband, General Mario Garcia Menocal, to acquire it for the state to be the Presidential Palace. The property transfer was carried out and it was inaugurated as the National Presidential Palace by president Menocal himself in 1920.
The last Cuban president to use the palace as his residence was Fulgencio Batista, who lived there until 1959.
The Museum of the Revolution was created in 1959 by direct order of the Communist Party, but it was not housed in the presidential palace until 1974.
