Lonely Planet review

Overlooking Plaza Honorato is this verging-on-decrepit church. Originally constructed of wood in 1522 and rebuilt in stone in 1680, it's said to be the oldest church in Cuba still standing on its original foundations (although the clock seems to have given out in recent years).

While the interior is crying out for some care and attention, locals are proud of this place. The best time to take a peek is during Sunday morning Mass. A small donation will go a long way.
