It was being renovated at the time of my last visit. Great architecture, poor upkeeping. The church is not open for visit 24h a day, but you can go around the back and knock on the door. The y will let you in and take a look around.

The official name for the park this church is situated in is Parque Carlos Manuel de Céspedes but everyone calls it Parque San Jose.
