Religious Site Church
Make your way to Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption to witness the 16th Century architecture that stands tall over Satiago de Cuba's central square. Erected in 1518, the cathedral features two tall bell towers flanking each side of the holy structure. Before you head in, take a look between the two towers to find an imposing statue of Michael the Archangel. Wander inside to find a tall central nave with wooden pews leading all the way down to a central altar. Arches and columns hold up the structure and stretch all the way up to a light blue and white dome shaped ceiling. Climb up one of the towers to enjoy views over the city.

  • I wanted to share with you our beautiful experience made in this Cathedral and at the same time the air you breathe. A place with so much history and when you leave you feel a peace of mind that is indescribable. Very nice also the statue that sits high, many people pray but if one wants to understand what it feels like we have to go and visit it at least once. I thank our friend Alessandro and owner of one of the most important agencies of Cuba (Caribe Travel Agency) for joining us in person. Soon we will return to visit other places of CUba.
