The Catedral de San Cristobal de la Habana is known in English as the Cathedral of Saint Christopher of Havana. The Cathedral of Saint Christopher in Havana, Cuba, started to be constructed in 1748, but the construction stopped in 1767 because Jesus Company, which was in charge of project was expelled from Spain. Not longer later there was an agreement to continue the construction of the Catedral de San Cristobal de la Habana. The construction of the cathedral ended in 1777.  On the picture you can observe the Catedral de San Cristobal and it is one of the examples of the baroque style in Cuba. It was only in 1787 that the building got the rank of cathedral. From 1796 to 1898 the body of Christopher Columbus laid in a mausoleum. A mausoleum is a sort of structure as a monument where there is inside a place or a chamber for one or more dead persons. The mausoleum may be considered as a tomb and in a Christian mausoleum it is sometimes with a chapel. The word mausoleum comes from the Mausoleum of Maussollos which is located in Turkey; it is the burial place of the King Maussollos. The tomb of the King made part of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
