Calle Empedrado y San Ignacio. La Habana Vieja. La Habana
Description
This was the last one of the main squares to be built. During the second half of the XVI century, some neighbors built their houses in this area and named it the swamp, because this is where the waters coming from the city gathered before going into the sea. It is therefore that the first running water system in Havana, Zanja Real, would relieve its waters through a whole on the wall of the square, at a place today known as El Chorro (The Stream), where there is currently a commemorative plate.

This square became one of the main places of the city during the XVIII century, wealthy families of Havana’s high society started then to build mansions that can still be seen in the area.

Its aspect changed completely, and its name became Cathedral Square after the outstanding Church of Jesus was built on one of its sides.

In the XX century, constructions took place in the square, as well as some restoration work considering the city planning work of a French man known as Portier, who earned the credit for the flower on the pavement.

The Cathedral Square is a charming and monumental place, inseparable from the soul of the City of Havana.
