This is a great Plaza at anytime of the day to people watch. Grab a coffee and relax. My favorite part is the sunsets and the shadows that cast on these amazing old buildings.

Looking like a movie set, this ancient square with its lovingly restored buildings is so charming. Just off it is a dead end street filled with cafes and restaurants, bursting with music.

This is a beautiful square within Habana Vieja which has the amazing cathedral. I believe that there is a New Year's Eve banquet here every year, but we didn't attend, heading to Obispo instead for the annual water soaking (such fun)! This square is a nice place to sit with a drink and people watch.

The place is great, the cathedral is one of the best preserved monuments in Havana but I don't recommend the restaurants here ( I have been to the one called Paris and another one but I can't remember the name of it). They are crowded, with little employees, average food and quite expensive.

One of my favorite places in Havana. Probably because it's quieter/less people than other areas and the Cathedral is architecturally magnificent. Plus there is a small street of the square, "Callejon del Chorro" that has 8 restaurants...4 of which I ate at and all really delicious! And with any leftovers you may have, this is a great spot to feed... More

This is a beautiful Catholic Church. Actually in pretty good condition… As you enter the door there is someone sitting at a table selling rosaries and other small religious items… If you have on a hat remember to remove it or they will ask you to… You are able to freely roam the church .. stay and pray as long...

I was wondering the streets through old Havana and happened to end up here and was so glad I did. The cathedral and and square where well lit and made for some great photos. Beautiful architecture and history.
