El Templete
Destination: Havana
El Templete - Address: Calles Baratillo and O'Reilly, Plaza de Armas, La Habana Vieja.

El Templete. A tall (and still growing) ceiba tree stands in front of this neoclassical Doric temple.
The tree is the younger cousin of a fallen giant that stood here, on the site where local citizens celebrated the town's first Mass and town meetings in the early 1500s.
Behind the tree stands the "little temple," which was built between 1754 and 1828. Inside, you'll find three large canvases by Jean-Baptiste Vermay depicting the inauguration of the Temple, as well as depictions of those town meetings and Masses. You'll also find a bust of the artist beside an urn containing his ashes.
