Nice quiet place to relax and watch people to stroll around. Had some street musicians as well. Apart from the musicians there isn’t much activity taking place. Just nice to relax after walking around a lot.

One of the four main squares that should be part of a tour of Old Havana. We visited all four squares with our guide in less than 2 hours. Great introduction to Havana.

Any tour of Old Havana should include at least a stroll through each of the four main plazas. It is an excellent way to see the neighborhoods and also creative use of old cannon

Must see part of Old Havana where the is the Fort, nice view of the Macon and Port. Centralized location to food, drinks, music & cigars. Excellent way to chill during a hot sunny Havana afternoon. De que color?!

This is a beautiful square in Old Havana. Our walking tour ended here, after seeing the other 3 major squares (Saint Francis, Cathedral, and Old Square). Could spend hours listening to the music and people-watching.
