“Visit the plaza then have dinner at Dona Eutimia”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Cuba's main cathedral is located in this plaza. Cuba's best palador, Dona Eutimia is just around the corner from the plaza. Do visit at night when it is lit. It is stunning.

“the only disappointment in Old Havana”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

The two other occassions we were in Havana, the square was buzzing with life and noise and music. It was the hub of all activity. Now it has become boring and lifeless

“Gorgeous.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

A must-see. This plaza has a vital energy to it. I didn't get to spend nearly enough time in the square during our visit. Would love to go back and spend an afternoon just sitting, enjoying the comings and goings of the cityfolk and tourists.
