We visited this area as part of a guided tour and can only comment that the area is unmissable on any trip to Havanna and the architecture is breathtaking

The church and square are must when you are in Havana. Night view are beautiful. The restaurants nearby offer great food also.

The lights were dim, and there were many places to eat and drink around this area. Every one is really nice, and its just a beautiful place to experience first hand.

The square feels like your are in Europe in many ways. There may be performers or artists. Stop, sit outside and people watch.
