Trip Planner : Caribbean / Cuba / Ciudad de la Habana Province / Havana / Sightseeing / Plaza de la Catedral
Plaza de la Catedral, Havana
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Cuban history comes alive at Plaza de la Catedral, home to one of Havana's oldest and most significant Catholic churches. Laid out on an erstwhile swamp, this epicenter of Havana's World Heritage-listed old town represents a kind of open-air museum of Caribbean Baroque architecture. Like the cathedral, the square dates back to the 1700s, when the area became a naval dockyard. Later, the neighborhood housed some of Havana's finest private mansions. Today, a number of popular restaurants and the city's museum of colonial art lie clustered around the plaza. Put Plaza de la Catedral and other Havana attractions into our Havana vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Me gustó mucho descubrir la estatua de Antonio Gades en uno de sus pórticos.I suppose that as all q visited Havana Cathedral Square seemed very nice.

Beautiful place in the Old Havana, good restaurants and near it´s the famous Bodeguita del Medio.
Near Plaza de Arma, it is an irregular shaped named Cathedral Square, where the Havana Cathedral, one of the most prominent landmark in Cuba, stands at the northern end. It is one of the most photogenic point in Havana and some newly weds love to take picture in front of the Cathedral. There are some dress-up ladies with cigar to ask tourist for money if taking photo with them.
One of the best places of Havana vijeia.
A nice cathedral set in 1 of the main plazas. The inside of it is not that spectacular. It's also very popular with big tour groups so getting the photo without others in it maybe a struggle.

A must if you visit La Habana. The cathedral is beautiful. The place is crowded all the time. There are some good restaurants around (and a lot of tourist traps)
