No Longer a Church

Iglesia de San Francisco de Paula in Havana is no longer a church. One of Havana’s most attractive churches was fully restored in 2000.  The structure is all that remains of the women’s hospital from the mid 1700’s. The building is lit up at night for classical music concerts. The stained glass windows, heavy cupola and baroque facade are distinctive architectural elements. I had the opportunity to take pictures inside of the facility during my visit to Cuba in 2014. Fortunately, there were no people milling about so I was able to take clear shots of the beautiful architecture.
