Well worth a visit. Also took an impromptu horse and cart ride offered by a polite but persistent guy outside the cathedral. We had a very enjoyable hour for 20cuc plus tip!

Surely in the "not to be missed" list for sightseeing in Havana. Always interesting and beautiful. Love the music sounds and the people milling around. If you speak Spanish, get your future "read" by Juana la Cubana, the santera lady that hold court across from Catedral. Quite the experience (not that she actually can read the future, though). :-)

This was a must see place if you are to visit Old Havana. Photography is perfect in the later part of the afternoon or very early mornings. Then the "tourist" take over :-)

After 4 visits to this city I never tire of this square.many artisans to visit and Havana's numero uno restaurant rated on this site. One of my fav luncheon sites the Santa Isabel is no longer a must go to, Downgraded to drinks only.still a great place to spend a few hours.
