It is very beautiful and crowded at night. The bars in this plaza are good ones especially one which had the beer made in artigianal way which was really good. Worth tasting

This place is under heavy renovation so the outside facade was not something that I was able to enjoy. But we did go inside and it was very interesting. Be sure to wear decent clothes because they might prevent you from entering. Arms, shoulders and legs for both sexes.

We did a day of travelling down Obispo Street and stopped here for drinks. First we had a drink sitting in the square and then moved up to the balcony for something to eat. It was very nice and relaxing.

What a beautiful church to take pictures in.We went in just after church service when everyone was in their church cloths. Just sit in the church and stare up at the ceiling and say a prayer if you like.

There are many squares to see and this is one of them. The cathedral is free to visit and worth going in. We found a lovely shop just at the side selling all the typical gifts you find in Havana but with a lovely member of staff. There is a museum off the square which is worth visiting, also a... More

Majestic architecture to be taken in and admired. Even as you wander to this old and noble structure you will feel the history seeming to ooze out of the walls.

Admire the great architecture of the colonial era and stroll through the streets of old havana. La bodeguita del medio, Floridita and Ambos Mundos (all places frequented by Hemingway are just a short distance away).
