Pay a visit to Havana Cathedral, a city landmark renowned for its stunning Baroque facade and unequal towers. Completed in 1777 by the Jesuits, the church serves as the seat of one of three archbishops of Cuba. Christopher Columbus' remains were interred in the church for over a hundred years, before being moved to Seville in 1898. Explore the interior, contrasting the facade with its Neoclassical simplicity, view antique paintings and frescoes, or climb one of the towers to enjoy the scenic view of the surroundings.

Havana Cathedral A.D 1777. Magnificent Roman Catholic Cathedral. Erected in the heart of Old Havana by using natural coral stone. You may see a splendid altar made in Rome inside the cathedral. There are many gilded sculptures, and there are small side altars. Two bells cast from an alloy of gold, silver and bronze have a fantastic and unique sound. The Cathedral has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Plaza de la Cathedral usually is the most crowded tourist spot in Old Havana. It’s an impressive and historical place. It’s obvious. Definitely worth to visit. I admired in February 2018.
The cathedral is very nice from the inside. Worth the visit. Also do not skip climbing the tower. You get a really good view from the city.
