Dominated by the eponymous 16th-century basilica, Plaza de San Francisco is a popular meeting point near Havana's harbor. Restored in the 1990s, the square is known for its architecture, cobblestone pavement, and a 19th-century white-marble fountain with lion statues, carved by sculptor Giuseppe Gaggini. Sit back and relax at one of the cafes with a refreshing drink, admire the preserved colonial buildings, and watch the cruise ships approaching the Sierra Maestra terminal.

What a beautiful and peaceful place. Take a walk in their gardens and go up to the tower if open, they have a great view of the city.
Both impressive and lovely place. It combines church, commercial buildings from the bygone era and park. Good place to sirt down and enjoy the Old Town of Havana.
