Catedral de San Rosendo

Pinar del Río Province

The city's understated cathedral is four blocks southeast of the cigar factory. It dates from 1883 and its exterior seems to change color every couple of years. As with most Cuban churches, the interior is often closed. Get a peek during Sunday-morning service.
