“Nice To Visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nice smallish cathedral in centre of old town, the square is now restored and the cathedral itself is what it is. Well worth a visit, but respect the tradition and wear respectful clothes

“A great visit for culture lovers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

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,

“Cuban Baroque”

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

“Trip to Havana”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

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.

“A welcoming place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

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.
