In the heart of the city of Holguin this modest by charming church is well worth a visit. The interior although simple is very interesting and worth a closer look.

Beautifully restored and well maintained church in the heart of Holguin. For all photographers out there it's a beautiful place to take photos with ample natural light.

Cathedral on the Holguin town square of San Isidoro is rather spectacular well maintained in a town where other buildings leave a little to be desired in terms of maintenance and paint. Lovely.

Small but well restored. The statue of John Paul II outside celebrates his 1996 visit and the official thawing of relations between the Cuban authorities and the Roman Catholic church. Worth a visit.

One of the nicest places to see in Holguin and worth a visit in a busy square where it is a good place to see Cubian way of life.Lots of horse and carriages and bicycle taxis.

What a beautiful church!! With carved wood figures, this is a true testament to the Spanish heritage of Cuba.
