We were impressed with how beautiful all of the churches and cathedrals were. We especially liked the Plaza de la Cathedral. It was quite beautiful. We had a wonderful architecture guide with us who explained so much about the building and the square. It is worth visiting Old Havana.

While walking around Old Havana I would certainly recommend checking out this plaza and the break taking coral cathedral. The architecture throughout Havana is fabulous

A well maintained older church that is still used for services. It was open to the public during the day. If you're in the plaza, stop in & see piece of history.

We found our way here about three times during our two days in Havana. It is a beautiful plaza surrounded by lovely buildings. We did tour inside the cathedral.

This is another place to go when in Havana. Just walk around and feel the atmosphere of this city and all these old buildings.

Very nice plaza, with Museum of Architecture Unfortunately we could not tour the museum because there were a lot of steps and I find it difficult ascent and descent of stairs. Square has a number of restaurants to choose from but we did not eat them so I have no opinion on them

Havana's old city boasts four great plazas, and I would rate the other three - Plaza Vieja, Plaza de Armas and Plaza de San Francisco - higher up on the 'spectacle' scale. That is not say to Plaza de la Catedral is not without charm: while it is the smallest of the four, the baroque-style cathedral has a captivating presence... More

Not to be ignored. Amazing place. Gets packed like every where else where tourism is bumming. The whole of Havana city should be explore, walk and you will be mesmerized of what you will find, keep the camera on.
