Havana's Plaza de la Catedral
Plaza de la Catedral is where you will find La Catedral de la Virgen María de la Concepción Inmaculada de La Habana (Iglesia Catedral de la Havana or Catedral de San Cristóbal), a beautifully preserved baroque church built in 1727 that looms over the plaza. You can climb up one of its unequal towers for a view of the city. A couple of palacios housing galleries and the Museo del Arte Colonial also call this plaza home, as well as the Seminario de San Marco y San Ambrosio. La Bodeguita del medio–perhaps Havana’s most famous bar and the birthplace of the mojito–is just around the corner from the cathedral if you feel so inclined as to have a drink.
