Havana Cathedral, Havana

(4.4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to Havana Cathedral, a city landmark renowned for its stunning Baroque facade and unequal towers. Completed in 1777 by the Jesuits, the church serves as the seat of one of three archbishops of Cuba. Christopher Columbus' remains were interred in the church for over a hundred years, before being moved to Seville in 1898. Explore the interior, contrasting the facade with its Neoclassical simplicity, view antique paintings and frescoes, or climb one of the towers to enjoy the scenic view of the surroundings. Put Havana Cathedral and other Havana attractions into our Havana itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
