This baroque style cathedral is one of eleven catholic cathedrals in Havana. Building work was begun by the Jesuits in 1748 and completed in 1777, which was well after they had been expelled from the island by King Carlos III. The cathedral once held the remains of Christopher Columbus.


"Though a bit hot and sticky, I found Havana an interesting city to walk around, in particular the old town with its citadel, cathedral and many small cafes, some with bands playing local music. After the previous few days of being on the bike it was nice to be walking everywhere and able to return to the flat for a meal in the evening. I made a couple more visits to the dollar shop with the brothers to buy food for them to cook, and though I got the feeling I was buying for more than just the three of us, I felt as I was nearly at the end of a trip that had cost far less than expected, I would just play along with it, determined to enjoy my my last few days without any hassle." - MH
