  • If you like the museum you can see the back of the Church. Our visit was on Sunday and the wrong was apparently done right. The church really radiates calm and is very well maintained. The square in front of the Church is also very cosy with a beautiful bronze statue.

  • A beautiful church and entryway. Lots of space in front for the plaza and a statue as well. It's pretty and the architecture is nice if you're into older churches.  more »
  • An architectural beauty of style NeoGothic s. Its construction dates from the end of the 17TH century, it is currently one of the best exponents of the religious buildings in Havana. It has two towers in Gothic Eagles and wreaths that adorn the top of the friezes, the floors are of black and white marble. It has three naves covered with barrel vaulting, an ambulatory which only exists in this church.

  • I came here because Im the fan of the tragic story of Cecilia - look at her statue in front of church - written by Cirilo Villaverde. (great writer) Cirilo Villaverde. This neo-Gothic church stands on La Loma del Santo Angelo. With its pure lines vertical is in contrast with the massive baroque structures characteristics of Havana Vieja. Originally built in 1690 and rebuilt in 1866, Santo Angel Custodio was the site of baptisms is that of José Martí Félix Varela, a priest, patriot and educator. It's also the place where the writer Cirilo Villaverde imposed on the main scene of his novel Cecilia Valdes (1812-1894). A plaque on the wall opposite the door of the church praises the portrait of Villaverde of Cuban life of the 19th century. Villaverde, in fact, made literary history with social realism telling the inhumane treatment of slaves. Martí, Varela and Villaverde were all key figures for the cause of Cuban independence
  • Very relaxing little square with a church, a bar/restaurant and the shop of the top fashion designer of Cuba. Great to read up on the tragic story of Cecilia (statue) written by Cirilo Villaverde.
  • A good church near the revolution museum.
  • A beautiful Gothic church in the old town .
  • Cool old church
