17 Cathedral of St. Christopher in Havana, Cuba

Havana’s famous church is the Cathedral of St. Christopher. Others refer to this Roman Catholic church as the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary of the Immaculate Conception while most simply call it Havana Cathedral. The Baroque building was started by the Jesuits in 1748. They were expelled from Cuba ten years before construction was completed. From 1796 until 1898, the remains of Christopher Columbus were interred here and then sent to the Seville Cathedral in Spain. The asymmetrical, twin bell towers of Catedral de La Habana visually dominate Plaza de la Catedral.
