Remember to avoid shorts and strappy tops or you wont be allowed in (ladies bring a wrap around to cover up with). An impressive Cathedral with an air of solitude and grace, well worth a visit,

A gorgeous church, a fine example of Cuban baroque, just breathtaking. I love the barroco Cuban style not over the top but nicely done.

Our family rented a driver and old car from the RIU staff. On the way to Havana, about 1 hour into the drive, we stopped at the top of a hill overlooking the valley and had the best Pina Coladas ever! Havana is an old town that is quite beautiful. The buildings do need repair - mostly within the buildings, ie. stairwells missing spindles and handles. We had lunch at a beautiful restaurant/hotel that looked like an outside grotta. Havana is an educational trip perfect for adults.

We attended Mass on Easter Sunday and were greeted by the friendly and helpful people assisting with the festivities. The entire congregation, mostly locals, were engaging and welcoming. The Bishop of Havana celebrated Mass and thanked all of us tourists who were there in several languages á la The Pope! There is a very good cafe outside in the square for coffee afterwards.

We did a day trip to Havana and were with a tour group. This was one of the destinations and I was so impressed with this church. Look way up, there is a beautiful chandelier hanging in the center and it just twinkles. There was singing while we visited and the acoustics are amazing. The stone used in the building of the cathedral is just beautiful! It is is sculpted like a work of art. Be prepared though as there was a lot of people outside the Cathedral wanting money.
