He was welcome by the Cuban president Raul Castro, who greeted Benedict at the airport, just days after Pope declared the island's Marxist system outdated.
The pontiff will be at a rally with tens of thousands believers later in the day at a huge outdoor Mass in the colonial of Santiago organized in the honor of Pope visit.
It is still unclear yet if Pope Benedict would meet with the former Cuban leader Fidel Castro 85, Raul's older brother and even with the Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez 57, who arrived in the Cuban capital over the weekend for cancer treatment.
Al thought Chavez has became more public religious since he was operated on foe cancer last summer in Cuba, and unconfirmed reports out of Venezuelan presidency said pope would have a sections with Hugo Chavez in Havana.
Meanwhile Cuban as a nation have less than 10 percent of it populace that are practicing Catholics Faith, Pope Benedict hope his visit could brings about a good change.
