Very beautiful old architecture and the surrounding area is nice. Just try and not go when the cruise ships are there. They discharge passengers very near this square.

If this was in St Francisco de Asisi Square, surely it will be right by the cruise terminal, which is to one side of the square, No band when we were there though.

Hi Kathleen, I don't know where you are staying in Havana but you can go to either the Parque Central Hotel or the Hotel Inglaterra. Both are located within minutes of each other right in the centre of Havana. If you go... More
