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

We went to Jose Marti's monument on a national holiday so it was closed. We could only explore the front of the monument which was impressive. I find Marti's writings very interesting and would have loved to have explored inside. But when you are facing away from Jose Marti's Monument you get an amazing view of the Plaza de la... More

Situated in the middle of the Plaza de la Revolución. Nothing particular. The Plaza itself is a must see more because of the loads of American Oldtimers and the monument a by product

Great history in this squar- a quick visit will make you appreciate how people stood to listen to Castro speak for 4-6 hours at a time. Great place for old car taxis

Part of Havana who definitely need to see more significant buildings in this place, but not so far away ... a great big market.

Every tour of Havana stops in the Square of the Revolution. The monument is right next to it but it was closed when we visited

When visiting the Plaza de la Revolucion - which most tourists will do - you can't miss it. After taking your pictures of Che and Camilo, turn around. Fidel used it to address his people, so it has historical importance.
