One of the four main squares. This one is dominated by the church that has given it its name. It is the closest to the waterfront and most of the old American cars and also the horse carriages are located closest to it awaiting customers.

The area is a central location for friends to find each other. Internet is limited so you have to converse the old fashion way. Give a time and place where to meet up, this was a great location because they classic cars were parked there as well. Two cigar shops are in the area also

First experience in Havana as we left the Cruise ship. Music playing, people dancing. Lots of restaurants and outside cafes. Elegant historical church and fabulous architecture. Colorful people. Great way to start your Havana vacation.

The best way to appreciated this square is to sit in one of the local cafes and enjoy a drink or a meal and watch the world go by.

This square has some nice buildings around it, including the church. It's near the ferry point, so a bit further out than some of the other squares, and less busy.

This is a busy place because you have so much here. A money exchange many cruise ship tourists use, a popular location to grab a taxi, near the cruise ship so many people coming and going, the beautiful church and many local restaurants!

The old church has concerts many weekends. There was a piano competition here on our first visit, which we enjoyed tremendously.

This was right across from the cruise dock area -- lovely square with lots of interesting historical stories about it! Post office is right there as well.
