There are far more interesting sights in Havana, especially in the old town. If you have got this far, go a bit further to the huge cemetery which is far more interesting and fun to see all the different architecture

On one side of the `Plaza de la Revolution, this is an impressive to one of Cuba's national heroes. There is a museum at the bottom of the tower which you can visit for an extra 2 Peseo's.

I was there on 2 January right after the parade, so I was not able to actually walk up to the monument (steps etc), but it was still a great sight and worth visiting for sure (if you're at Plaza de la Revolucion you're already there)

The monument dominates revolution square and affords great views of the square. The museum is informative and very worthwhile. A small camera charge is collected at the foot of the stairs to the monument.

This is a must see complex of buildings and the monument It is actually pre-revolutionary. You can go to the top of the monument and also visit the museum which few people do. They are missing an excellent view of the city.

It is quite a walk from old Havana. This monument dominates the square. There is a museum inside and a lift to the top where there are panoramic views
