Nuestra Señora de Monserrate (Centro Havana) church

              The church of Our Lady of Montserrat located on Avenida de Italia (or Galiano) and Concordia is not the original structure or location. The first one (between Obispo and O'Reilly), built in 1675, was destroyed in 1836 and rebuilt in this location in 1844. There isn't a heck of a lot written about this church on the internet but something to note is that the parents of Jose Marti were married in this church and later they baptized their famous son here.
