For me it's the Pantheon, Hagia Sophia, and then everything else.

It's, as far as I remember, the first practical application of the "triple-dome" structure, similar to that used in the Capitol:

Not similar, actually the US Capitol dome was modeled after St. Paul's.

Amazing, I love this thread, keep them coming, such beautiful structures, just absolutely beautiful.

Both of them seem to be similar to Soltaniyeh dome which is some hundreds years older than them, an historical painting by Eugene Napoleon Flandin:

Dome of the National Capitol, Havana, Cuba


Havana Capitol Building by Bennet Summers, on Flickr


The greenish bands between the ribs at the top of the dome are copper, and were initially golden in hue. Some photos exist about this initial period.



Capitolio - La Habana - 1000157 by Patxi64, on Flickr


The "finial" at the very top was originally equipped with a powerful light that would shoot out vertically at night.



Cupula del Capitolio Nacional. by ROGALI, on Flickr


Under this dome, there used to be a large diamond that marked kilometer zero for all roads of Cuba.



Havana Skyline 1 by Schatzky Photography: Seeing Things Differently, on Flickr


The origins of the dome have been said by some to be that of the U.S. Capitol, St. Paul's Cathedral's dome, St. Peter's dome, etc. I, as well as others, believe that this dome resembles the Pantheon in Paris far more, although it has been stretched vertically.
