The Palacio del Segundo Cabo (Segundo Cabo Palace) is located on the north side of Plaza de Armas Square, Old Havana.

This majestic palace, as well as the Capitanes Generales Palace is Neoclassical in style and was built in 1772 with local limestone full of holes and calcareous marine incrustations.

Its construction was ordered by the Marquis de la Torre, a Governor of Cuba, who also commanded the other four great constructions closing the Plaza de Armas Square. Eventually, only this one was built along with the Capitanes Generales Palace, which nowadays hosts the City Museum.

This building was first built as headquarters of the Spanish vice-governor. Currently, and after several reworkings during which it functioned as Post office, Senate Palace, Supreme Court, National Academy of Arts and Letters, or the Cuba Academy of Science, it belongs to the Cuban Ministry of Culture, and its interior hosts the official publishing house and a wonderful bookshop.

Inside is the distinctive Raúl Martínez Gallery Room, an amazing example of pop art.
