Catedral De San Cristobal
This is the Cathedral were the pope visited and had the big mass in 2000 year.
Its a beautiful church, and the architecture is fabulous.
You wont miss it while getting to Old Havana, a real beautiful place !
Admire the beautiful baroque church of San Cristobal (18th century) and the spanish colonial architecture of surrounding buildings in Plaza de la Catedral.
On the same square there is the Museum of Colonial Art into a 1720's building ($2 - opening time: 9:30am - 7pm), and a nice but quite touristic restaurant "El Patio", on the other side.

Catedral de San Cristobal
This old cathedral is a popular touristy spot, and a short walk both from El Malecon and the tourist hotels where Ernest Hemingway hung out in the older times.
You can spend time here being a total tourist and people will try to get all sorts of things from you by entertaining or begging.
You can also have a drink and listen to some great music.

I wish I had known about VT years ago when I actually went to Cuba, because everything has faded from my memory now. If you know what this building is, please let me know and I"ll update my web page. All I remember is that this is a very famous church, and this courtyard is nice place to go and relax.
Oh, for all your photography buffs out here.. I made a huge mistake taking this picture. If you look closely, you'll notice the vignetting around this picture. The reason this happened is that I tried, foolishly, to take advantage of two filters for this shot, a polarizer and a UV filter. The camera actually imaged some of the UV filter for this shot.. Kids, don't try this at home..

Pope John Paul II visited this cathedral in 1998. This cathedral is considered the main one in the city of Havana.
