This is a different plaza for old Havana. It's mainly surrounded by residential buildings, some with some restaurants in the ground floor or second floor with balconies. It has a beautiful fountain and a weird rooster statue with a naked woman on it... supposedly celebrating women. The restaurants are overpriced and offer tourist food, not good local food. Nice for a visit and maybe a drink not food

The history in Havana's buildings is legendary. At 500 years of age, there's something magnificent to see at every corner. The plaza here was a delight. Good lines of site to the various buildings, so we grabbed a seat at a table in one of the cantinas and ordered ourselves a drink. Just a great place to visit, pass some time, and people watch.

I didn't go to any of the cafes or restaurants so cannot comment on the quality of the beer or food in this area...however...as a stand alone square I think it has unrivalled beauty. It absolutely took my breath away. I've travelled to many, many cities all over the world and done my fair share of town squares & plazas, but this one, has gone straight to No1 in my list. Mesmerising.

Having visited Plaza Vieja during the Special Period when it looked like London at the height of the blitz (WWII), it is always a pleasure to see the continuing restoration and rejuvenation of this stunning square. Excellent.

Big open space in a crowded city. Feels more like a colonial area than much of the city. Plenty of bars
