Los Frailes

The sermons and chanting from the San Francisco de Asís Basilica have overflowed to the nearby Los Frailes Hostal. Recently opened, innkeepers dressed as monks provide chambers for true believers and the less devout on calle Teniente Rey No. 8 entre Oficios y Mercaderes, just a few meters from Old Havana’s Plaza Vieja. Former residence of the French Creole Pedro Pablo Duquesne, it recreates an ecclesiastic environment with sextants, oil lamps, irises, crucifixes and beautiful murals.
