The basilica and the monastery of San Francisco de Asis (Saint Francis of Assisi) were built in Havana, Cuba at the end of sixteenth century (1580–91) as the home of the Franciscan community, and were altered in the baroque style in 1730.

"El Caballero de Paris" statue by Jose Maria Lopez-Lledin. The metal statue's beard has been polished over the years by the hands of tourists and seekers of good luck.
