Loved the plaza

Right now this place is being renewed, but going around and feeling the pace on the cathedral square is a must.

A magnificent building...but fenced off during our visit and not open to the public. Would have loved to see the interior.

Unfortunately when we visited Havana the cathedral was covered in scaffolding. Whilst it's nice to see them renovating things it was disappointing not be able to see the cathedral in all its glory. You could still see that the cathedral was beautiful though and is definitely worth seeing when you're in Havana.

We really wanted to go in the cathedral-- it's impressive and beautiful from the outside, but each time we tried, we were too late (or too early) and the doors were shut.

An old church in the middle of the old city, very close to the seaside and currently under renovation. You feel the warmth of faith when you're in. A place to visit.

Like a lot of things it needs work to fix. This is currently what they are doing. Of course if you have seen Europe on cathedrals this isn't the same

Beautiful church that simply must be on your radar when you tour Old Havana in your 1950's Chevy convertible
