Overview

The building where the current church and convent of Saint Francis of Assisi stand dates back to the 16th century, which was when the main religious orders established themselves in Havana. Since 1842 it has been run by the Third Order of Saint Francis that dates from the first half of the 17th century; it was then that Augustinian monks first arrived in Cuba. The architecture has a marked ornamental Mexican feel to it; the building now has a multiple role as museum and venue for all sorts of concerts and other cultural events.
