Cannonball in wall!

Revisited this square, once we could find it! Best bit is the cannon ball in the wall of the church!

By the port, so beautiful sunrise. Next to the Rum Museo, so beautiful drinks. In Habana Viejo, so amazing walks.

You certainly need to visit this square, especially the shops around it. The whole are is being renovated & it's within walking distance from Calle des mercadores (excuse the spelling).

I highly recommend visiting here. There are some lovely buildings and restaurants at this square where you can just sit and enjoy. You can get some great views of the square if you visit the church that is located there and go to the top. Visiting the church is a must as it is a main tourist attraction in the... More

A lovely square with some nice restaurants and buildings. You have to pay to visit the church but side doors open to view inside. Visit as part of walk round city.

This plaza is a great place to sit in the shade with a Cristal beer and watch the Cuban world go by. A good pit stop with plenty of places to eat or drink nearby. You might want to get somewhere that's in the breeze coming up from the harbour.

We were staying on a hotel on this square and it is delightful! There are a number of charming bars/restaurants, as well as the post office (complete with lion post box) and the lively limestone church all within a stones throw of the old port and the car rental area!

Havana is the most complete architectural compound in Latin America and its four colonial Plazas are eye-witnesses of the city's evolution throughout the centuries, San Francis of Assisi Square will depict faithfully all the latter!

The best place to start a visit to Cuba. Located in the old Havana, it allows access to the best old Havana has to offer.

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.
