Plaza de San Francisco, Havana

(4.6/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Dominated by the eponymous 16th-century basilica, Plaza de San Francisco is a popular meeting point near Havana's harbor. Restored in the 1990s, the square is known for its architecture, cobblestone pavement, and a 19th-century white-marble fountain with lion statues, carved by sculptor Giuseppe Gaggini. Sit back and relax at one of the cafes with a refreshing drink, admire the preserved colonial buildings, and watch the cruise ships approaching the Sierra Maestra terminal. With our custom trip planner, Havana attractions like Plaza de San Francisco can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • La place San Francisco est située juste en face du terminal des ferries. Quand nous quittons notre bateau de croisière, c'est le premier contact avec La Havane. 
  • Jammed with tourists, as the cruise ships land close by. Be careful that you are not paying New York prices for food and drink. Good and inexpensive experiences can be found only a block or two away 
  • Fui de noche ...... huyy ni les cuento es precioso!!!! es un paseo recomendado, paseamos con tranquilidad. Lo mejor no hay delincuencia.
