The plaza is surrounded by good restaurants and equally good places to enjoy a drink while taking a break from the heat and sun. Music flows out of all corners, and the surrounding shops and museums are worth a visit.

This beautiful structure of religion is incongruous in a communist country that had previously outlawed religion. However, this is left from centuries before and is a stunning architectural wonder. The baroque exterior belies the classic interior.

Walking into the building was stunning! Inside is spiritual feeling for me a Catholic. It was worth the trip!

Some good old bones to this building but a can of paint might help to freshen it up a little. Not to be missed if in Havana.

Like many places in Cuba, this Plaza de la Catedral is a work of art. The inside of the cathedral is worth some time and do not be impressed by the rope closing the way, it is fully open on the sides to give you full access. A few artisans were renovating the scup;ted wood in the front

It's a great place to get up high and take pics. My images of the Cathedral from a building that was being renovated are outstanding!
