Catedral San Cristobal de Habana - Historical Building Havana - Cuba

Havana’s cathedral is located on the northern face of the Plaza de la Catedral square. While elaborate, it does not match cathedrals elsewhere in the world for its decadence. The architecture is of the baroque style, and the church was completed in the late 18th century following the Jesuits (who were originally responsible for building it) being expelled from the country in 1796. The façade takes over the square, with its tall pillars and elaborate stonework. On the right hand side (facing the cathedral) is the bell tower, which it is possible to ascend for a cost of 1 CUC.
