It's worth a visit to Havana just for this plaza Mar 15, 2017
The title is a little bit exagerated but believe me it is well worth it. Beautiful old buildings , well renovated and in the main put to good use. This was the third of Havana's main squares and has been used for bullfights and executions as well as being the main market place during the 18th c. Buildings around the square include the Camera Oscura at the summit of the sumptuous Art Gomez Vila, Palacio del Conde de Jacuso and the Museo de Naipes (a playing-card museum). You'll also find the Fototeca de Cuba which has permanant and temporary exhibitions in a 17th c house facing the square. In the centre are two statues and a fountain, also fun to sit and watch the numerous schools whose kids are brought here for some PE in the open air. Plenty of fun people-watching too from the couple of bar/terrasses there arein the square. From here it is just a short walk to practically everywhere in the old quarter. No traffic risks here, even bicytaxis do not have the right.
