An old church instaled close to the port

The building and the statue in front of the church are charming, Take care on the pigeon that all over the space.

It's a square like so many in Cuba. It has a church, and some restaurants. It's worth visiting since its located among an interesting part of the city and the water. Lots of tourists.

If you go in November, during city Anniversary festivities, they say you can walk around a big tree and ask for a witch. The place is beautiful and you can enjoy a nice walk from there to different places (La Cabana, La Cathedral, Old Cars Museum

This is a very nice historical and cultural place. Right next to it, you have the cruise terminal. Lots of people going by every single day and literally hundreds of pigeons everywhere which don´t seem to mind people around them. The fountain in the middle of it is a very nice touch with the beautifully sculpted lions. The San Francisco... More

Nice to spend some time here for a wander. St Francis of Asis Church worth a visit. Word of warning, do not use the Cadeca in this area as they tried to short change me $50 CAD. $250 entered on the computer and only $200 on receipt - said there was a problem with the computer and she didn't know...

The church has an unusual mural on the wall behind the altar that I didn't notice until you look down, it gives the impression of an alcove but it's a flat wall. I wasn't allowed to get a better view of the painting when I came down, which was a pity as I'm keen on art. Well worth the 2cuc... More

On our first day in Havana, we'd arranged to go on a walking tour of the 4 main squares in Old Havana and were delighted to discover that our hotel was actually situated in the most beautiful one. We spent so much time either sat at an outdoor cafe or just chilling out on the steps of some lovely building,... More
