Beautiful plaza

A lovely place to visit. Worth going inside the cathedral too. Some nice cafés around the square to sit and people watch.

Recommend a visit to this beautiful church. Short shorts are not allowed, but they will give ladies a wrap.

You feel like you are in a Assassins Creed video game (Pirates version). This square is very picturesque and beautiful.

Havana is a magical place. This plaza has live music, stunning buildings and interesting people. A must see on your visit to the city. Slip into one of the side streets and go into the cathedral.

Only viewed from the outside but it is very beautiful. The towers on either side are completely different from one another.

Together with the 'Plaza Vieja', this it the most charming square in Havana : the facades of the cathedral and the surrounding houses, ... it's all perfect. Have a drink on the terrace of 'El Patio' and look at the people passing ... The cathedral is rarely open, but don't hesitate to visit it if you can
