Ermita de Potosí

Church in Regla & Guanabacoa

Inexplicably, barely anyone visits this, the oldest church in Cuba still standing in its original perch. The existing structure dates from around 1675 and is a simple mudéjar design with a single belltower and a wooden ceiling. It sits in an eerie graveyard atop a hill in Guanabacoa and is in remarkably good condition following a 21st-century restoration.
