Not the most elaborate Cathedral I have seen, but the depiction of Saints is very unique. A good stop for Catholics.

I visited the cathedral on Christmas. The church was packed with worshipers. The ceremony of the High Catholic Mass was inspirational, even to an non-Catholic like myself. Cathedral Plaza is an interesting threshold to the cathedral with interesting shops and lots of paladars.

Actually the eroded limestone is what makes this cathedral so unique and gives it character. It was clod so we could not go in but the exteriors is quite lovely.

This magnificent cathedral is worth a visit. Behind massive wooden doors is a well designed colonial piece of architecture. One can feel the power the Catholic church must have had in Colonial times by experiencing the grandeur of this building.

Went to the sunday catholic service staring at 10:30am on a hot day... It looks like, you cannot visit it any other day. There is always something to have a church service in a very old building..

When you write about Havana, you think of the old city and the cathedral is one of the most iconic buildings in the old city. It is another piece in the puzzle.

The detail in this place is incredible. We were on a private tour so we could look at our own pace. We arrived in the morning so it wasn't busy. Very impressed.

Impressive looking cathedral with a bell tower and nice architecture. Quite small inside and easily viewable from just inside the entrance where you stand behind a rope. You can pay and walk around but there is no real need. Please be aware you cannot wear shorts,hats or short skirts inside the main area.
