Iglesia del Santo Angel Custodio - No name plate but this statue is just by the bust of Villaverde, so presumably it is of Cecilia Valdes.

Not easy to find.... Mar 21, 2017
This church is not that easy to find being on a small promontory at the northern end of the Old Town and tucked away down a side street. I was only only attracted here when seeing the multi-spires. Originally built in the late 1600's, it was virtually demolished by a hurricane in 1846 and rebuilt over 5 years from 1866-71. One of Cuba's most famous sons was christened here , namely José Marti. There is a bust on the wall outside of Cirilo Villaverde, an important Cuban poet and writer who set part of his novel "Cecilia Valdes or the Angel's Hill" on the steps here. There is a statue on the small square in front of the church whom I presume to be "Cecilia Valdes".
