Absolutely beautiful cathedral. The stone work, art work and just sheer magnitude of the place will blow you away. So much to absorb when you walk in. Entry is free but remember to remove your hat upon entry.

A rather unspectacular building which was completely underwhelming. I would neither encourage nor discourage a visit.

Well worth a stop. They ask for modest dress to enter but will loan a wrap for those with short shorts.

This was another quick stop on the walking tour and one that anyone can appreciate. Whether you affiliate with the religious aspect, appreciate art and architecture, or just crave old Euro-type photo opportunities, this is a nice little stop.

Stop by this landmark with our tour guide from Locally Sourced Havana Tours and really loved hearing about how this building was built. The stones that make up the church are actually from the sea so if you come close, you can see the coral...More
