Built in 1892, this is Vedado’s oldest church; and is mostly known by its celebration of Corpus Christi in May, in addition to many other Catholic festivities. The wooden altar, pulpit and stained-glass windows have not been replaced since the church was built.
It is conspicuous for the wide shaded park running along its side, is a couple of blocks further on. Built over 100 years ago as Vedado’s first church, it still retains almost all its original features, including the wooden altar, stained-glass windows and a carved wooden pulpit. One of the smaller stained-glass windows was commissioned by María Teresa Bances – the wife of Cuban nationalist José Martí’s son.
