We spent most of the day with the youth of the church visiting museums.  These kids are amazing!  And they are ALL gorgeous, their faces just light up!!

Plaza de la Catedral (English: Cathedral Square) is one of the five main squares in Old Havana and the site of the Cathedral of Havana from which it takes its name. Originally it was a swamp, then later it was drained and used as a naval dockyard. Following the construction of the Cathedral in 1727, it became the site of some of the city's grandest mansions. 

Since 1982 Old Havana has been an UNESCO World Heritage site.
