Description
The Catedral in Havana sits close to the sea in the Plaza de La Ciénaga. Constructed by the Jesuits from 1748-77, the Catedral is dedicated to Saint Christopher and was inhabited by Jesuit priests ... Read more
until 1789. The exterior of the Catedral is the only example of a baroque facade that was designed with asymmetrical features, one of the towers is wider than the other. The interior includes copies of paintings by Rubens and Murillo on the alters and frescoes by Italian artist Giuseppe Perovanni at the top end of the choir section. The Catedral's beautiful 18th-century Ecclesiastic architecture is a must see in Havana.

This is an impressive stone church. Definitely worth a look if you are in old town. I was told the left tower is smaller than the right because a rich Italian merchant lived next door to the church and paid to have the tower made smaller so it would not encroach on his property. The plaza is also very nice, but expect to be followed around by people trying to sell you one thing or another every time you pass through it.
