      Yep, more or less, because you also describe many buildings around the square!

As the name says, it is one of the oldest squares in La Havana. Ideal for architecture fans.

My experience, Explo description: 

The place was built in 1559. Many bars, restaurants, and different architectural styles, from the Baroque to the Gaudi inspired buildings.

My personal recommendations: 

Go to the Camara Oscura (2 CUC, 9am to 5pm, closed on Mondays, Sundays : 9am to 1pm) for an exceptionnal view over the city. This tower is 35m high.

How getting there: 

The Plaza Vieja is in Habana Vieja.

A tip to eat: 

Have a drink at the Café Taberna, where Benny Moré and other Mambo kings where used to play.

A tip to sleep: 

In Habana Vieja!
