Plaza del Carmen offers everything a tourist can wish for: a beautiful Baroque church surrounded by well-kept houses, no cars (pedestrian area), few tourists, good public art, a great art gallery and a couple of restaurants -my favourite being El Ovejito, excellent and moderately priced

Very nice place to see. There are little stands to purchase handmade gifts. The area has a bar right in front which you can seat and enjoy a beer or better yet a Mojito.

It's a lovely place to seat and contemplate the surrounding architecture and the art galleries. There are a couple of cafés as well.

So much history to be absorbed in this square. Quite the architectural wonder of Cuba with so much to see and do.
