A great location to watch to inhabitants of Havana hang out and socialise. Best visited in late afternoon or evening.

This is basically an empty square with a few outdoor restaurants on alleyways off the square. One sees people congregating in these square areas but there is not a lot else going on. We passed this cathedral almost daily as a couple of the pleaders that we dined in were located close by.

A small plain cathedral with unremarkable features. Beggars sit on the steps outside but they do not pester you. On our visit much of the inside was cordoned off and staff showed no interest in helping us get the most from our time there. Slightly disappointing.

The person who visited Havana is a place visited by all means. You will feel the Caribbean history in this open space.

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.
