This Catedral is where started our Old Havana walks each day. It is lovely and very well cared for. There are also great restaurants and architecture flanking the whole plaza.

Lovely restaurant located here, 3 litre beer available for 12 cuc! The prices are great. The view of the caterwaul is very nice and surrounding buildings from the patio area we were sitting on. There was a band playing and many tourists and locals alike.

I felt like I was in Europe, very similar to Spain or Italy architecture. Peaceful environment and very clean.

This is a historic and beautiful Cathedral. The inside is beautiful but most importantly it is a place of worship that is still used today. This square is full of people and you will find many Cuban's practice their religion today. Worth the visit and pictures.

This church is located in a square in Havana. I only got to see the outside as it was closed on Saturday. They should put up signs though so visitors know the opening hours. Was very disappointed as this was one of the must see places for my visit.

Until 1620 this area was a swamp - now it is flanked by buildings which have been restored, they offer a glimpse of the elegance of Havana. The church became a cathedral at the end of the 18th century (the building work started a lot earlier). If you feel fit, you can climb one of the towers of the cathedral... More
