A family member is a Catholic and we were passing so we popped in to view the Cathedral and to purchase a couple of prayer cards. It also has a toilet if tourists know where to look! Papa Francisco/Pope Francis had visited in 2016.

We were lucky enough to arrive early enough to avoid the heat and climb to the top of the cathedral and enjoy the views. This is a beautiful cathedral and must not be missed on your tour of Old Havana.
