One of a few Gothic buildings in Havana, the church’s construction started in 1914. It remains the country’s tallest and most beautiful Catholic church. Famous for its majestic stained glass windows, the church is adorned with many Gothic elements, from its altar, pointed arch, to ogival vaults and narrow walls. The church can be seen from different angles in Centro Habana, but it’s said to be at its best when seen from Calle Reina or Reina Street, from where the image of the sacred heart carved in a wood and a group of five angels forming a baldachin can be easily seen.
