Review of Havana Cathedral

Havana Cathedral

Reviewed June 26, 2013

18th Century church with Cuban Baroque facade, Neo-Classical interior is a little austere. Has undergone a fair bit of restoration.

Churches in Cuba and everywhere in the world, it seems as if they are in every corner of the hemisphere...NOT like this Roman Catholic church, this ONE is a STAND OUT!

I stood in the square just in awe, frozen, could not even take a picture. I was not sure what to capture, it was ALL so breathtaking...

A MUST SEE!

Like most churches in Cuba, it is closed much of the time. Inside is modest furnishings. There is a small table with inexpensive items to purchase. No daily mass but they allow Sunday services.

Entry is free to Havana Cathedral and the cathedral provide tours. It's not as grand as some you might see in Europe, but definitely worth a visit.

The cathedral was even more impressive inside than out, and the Sunday Mass was wonderful. Worth a visit (note the gates are often locked, so you have to time your visit carefully).
