In a press conference in Havana, Leal explained that the tours of the Capitol are included within the Rutas y Andares (Routes and Walks) initiative,  a public program that since 2001 is promoted by the Office of the Historian of Havana, which he runs, and brings families closer to the heritage of the historic center of the city.

“The tours will be guided by an architect, a restorer, to see the restoration work of such an important and emblematic place to Cuba,” said the historian, stressing that it will be “the first time” that people may attend the work done on the property.
