“Beautiful!”
Review of Havana Cathedral

Havana Cathedral

Easy to find, and worth the stop. Make sure to have a mojito in the plaza, or find one of the authentic Cuban restaurants in one of the back alleys! You will not regret it!

Great square and the cathedral is in good condition. Avoid the restaurant opposite as it is very expensive and the food not that great. More exciting and value for money establishments on the side streets.

The New Year eve party at the Cathedral Square is a treat. From the musical review to the atmosphere this was a treat. This is certainly not the most beautiful church in the Americas and not even in Cuba by any account. But it's worth a visit if only to experience the peaceful atmosphere and the dedication of the volunteers, priests and nuns that kept it going during the "dark ages" of the Castros’ spat with the catholic church.

i am not sure if it is open everyday but we were fortunate enough to attend a mass for Chavez who is being treated in Cuba. It was very emotional and the cathedral is beautiful..

The Cathedral is open only a few hours a week so if it is open when you pass by, GO IN! Your Intourist guide can't take you around. You need a free guide provided by the Cathedral. There are only 3 Masses here a week: Tuesday 8 am, Thursday 8 am, Sunday 10:30 am.
