habana - plazas

a south american friend & his esposa went to havana, cuba and gave me his photos to share.

this thread is of habana vieja (old havana) plazas - enjoy!

plaza de la catedral (la catedral de san cristobal built 1748-77)
before the cathedral this was fka plaza de la cienaga (swamp plaza)

there is a little square in front of iglesia del santo angel custodio (b. 1690, 1866)

la plaza vieja (the old square) as of 1814
fka plaza nueva (new square) after 1559 & plaza del mercado (market square) in the 1700s

one of my favorite photos of old havana

not the best photos, but this is the old square at night

plaza de san francisco (1st convent built 1580-91, church 1719),
but this portside square existed long before that

terminal sierra maestra -- for cruise ships and a ferry

plaza de armas (b. 1519), took its name in 1580

wooden streets (b. 1800s)

last is lunch and rest just off the plaza de armas

*** i hope you enjoyed visiting some of old havana’s historic squares ***

!!! I'm overcome with jealousy. As a photographer, it would be very difficult for me to have only a short visit to this place.
