Catedral De San Cristobal - Review

This magnificent cathedral is undoubtedly that one place that has to be visited while in Havana. Even if you want to skip out on all the other older buildings and historic sites, this place is a definite must see. In many ways it is the face of Cuba tourism.

The building is simply stunning in every way possible. The famous façade is simply gorgeous. It has been designed and constructed in the Baroque style of architecture. The most interesting thing about it are the two towers which are of different heights but still seem to fit.

The interiors are equally lovely and the church has inspired many a great artist. The old charm of this building cannot be denied and it is a Havana essential on your trip.

Catedral De San Cristobal, Havana Reviews

  • Tolle Cathedrale

  • It's worth paying a bit extra to enjoy a nice view from the bell tower.

  • The construction of Catedral de San Cristobal lasted more than three decades. The building project was started by the Jesuits in 1748 but they could not complete it owing to their expulsion from the place in 1767. The project was completed in 1787 even after without the Jesuits that initiated the project. It was first a church but with the creation of the diocese of Havana, it became a cathedral. Catedral de San Cristobal is reputed as one of the oldest churches. Before the remains of Columbus were moved to Seville, they were interred here from 1795 to 1898. If you want to visit this place, it is recommendable that you go around 10:30am on a Sunday.

  • When I came here there was a concert going on!

  • An absolutely peculiar cathedral.
