Located in 2 Calle Compostela Street, Old Havana, the Iglesia del Santo Ángel Custodio Church was built in 1695, but wasn’t considered a church until 1788.

The original church was severely affected by the 1846 hurricane, so it was completely refurbished in the current Neo-gothic style, one rather different from the original.

Félix Varela and José Martí were baptised here. It is also interesting to know that this temple is mentioned in Cecilia Valdés, a great 19th century Cuban novel by Cirilo Villaverde.

Currently, the temple has two towers and an atrium where the church’s cemetery was formerly located.

The entry doors are in the shape of pointed arches, and in its interior has three naves covered by barrel vault, as well as an ambulatory, the only church in Cuba to contain this feature.
