yeah not bad. a bit small and underwhelming inside. It's a basic church in a pretty, old plaza with Cubans dressed up in traditional costume wanting money for photos.

Built by the Jesuits in the late 1700's, it really is the best example of Baroque architecture in Cuba (flanked by some other excellent mansions! Funny enough is the fact that the interior decoration is purely neo-classical, following the whims of an 19th century influential Catholic Priest who adored this architectural style.

Not as posh & elaborate as some European ones but nice & cool. The outside of the building is lovely & the square is attractive. There are some nice little side streets off the square to browse for painting or crafts. Beware to people in traditional clothes, if you take a photo they will expect a tip, which is fine... More

Be prepared for a lot of hassle in this area from people.Found it difficult to pause and take in the sights. Check opening times of Cathedral. It was never opened when we went there. lots of galleries and places in this area.

Part of walking tour, excellent way to spend a morning, the knowledge of our guide, Babi, was excellent, as was her english, and she was also so passionate and proud of her country that is something unusual for us to see in one so young.

A very typical plaza, must be seen for the architecture of the Cathedral but also for the plaza itself, a really nice place to see

Perfect place to wander around, observe the locals and check out the architecture. If you get tired there are a number of nearby establishments where you can rest your feet and order a rum. Or coffee.
