Even if the Cubans are not religious, they certainly show respect for this instituion. It has been kept in relatively good condition.

This square is so easy to get to, so beautiful, such a big part of the Cuban picture. Go up the tower for a spectacular view. Beautiful paintings inside, the architecture is so worth the visit. Very nice cafes and restaurants nearby. Great for a walking tour.

I visited the Plaza de Catedral and the Cathedral on a tour to Cuba on 2/26/17, and I thought the Plaza and the Cathrdral were really beautiful. The plaza is surrounded by vintage buildings and the cathedral is open for tourists to walk in and look at the beautiful interior of the building. While we were outside with our tour... More

One of the reasons to visit the building is its beauty and history and the other reason is you can get some cooling after a sunny walk.

This is an easy stop while hitting the many places in downtown Havana. It is similar to many Cathedral's but did not let my wife in as she was wearing shorts.

We eventually located the square which was pleasant enough but it was Christmas day which may have had a bearing on us not being able to gain access to the catherdral.
