This is one of the most popular plazas in Habana Vieja (Old Havana) and has the famous and lovely Cathedral de San Cristobal (established 1748). The cathedral is open most days to visitors, and there is a huge, somewhat tacky tourist market in the open-air plaza. There is also an outdoor café and musicians playing on the patio, which is very popular among tourists. Although mostly for tourists, this is a very relaxed place to spend an afternoon, as there is outdoor seating and lovely open spaces to sit and people-watch or just unwind.
