This cathedral has beautiful architecture and history both inside and out. Don't forget to cover shoulders and short shorts when you go in. Worth spending a little time to take in the beauty of the interior.

The whole Cathedral Square is beautiful. The building is very nice, baroque style. Well maintained and free to visit. You pay if you want to climb up the tower.

The Cathedral of Havana really captures the essence of a gone era, with a very representative architecture. Obligatory stop for a traveller in Cuba.

The Cathedral dates back to the 1600s and it is a must see. Beautiful inside and out and lots of history. Beautiful plaza with other important and interesting buildings.

You close to every point of interests and the cathedral is really worth seeing and you can have a small break of freshness inside.

This cathedral is beautiful, stepping inside the cool magnificent interior gives you time to step back and think a while, while outside the hustle and bustle of Havana goes on. A welcome moment of solitude

The cathedral is central to Havana is is actively used today. Many people here worshiping. Beautiful interior but dark. Worth a stop to see religion is alive and well in Havana.

I'm not religious but I love the architecture of this place. It is a great treat and miracle that this place is still intact even in a communist country. Respect to the Cuban people for it.
