Package Itinerary

The last square to visit will be the Plaza de la Catedral (cathedral square), the last one to be built. It was originally know as Plaza de la Cienaga (square of the swamp)because the water brought by the Zanja Real from the Almendares river flooded the area. In the following centuries the swamp was drained and houses of rich merchants were built there. When the order of the Jesuits was suppressed in the 1700s their oratory was given to the bishop as Cathedral of Havana. In the 20th century, the square, the cathedral and the surroundings were full restored.
