I loved this plaza the most. It had the most charm with outside cafes and sculptures in the square. You can take a carriage ride, shop, or have a wonderful meal. A great place to relaz and enjoy Cuban hospitality.

All the squares in Havana are lovely and good places to relax in. You can get a good view of the square from the bell tower of the St Francis of Asisi church.

Wonderful square with a cute church and some excellent coffee or rum bars nearby. Well worth a visit and walk through the Old Town for this square.
