The views of the lighted portraits of the revolutionaries are impressive, and seeing the tower, but after that... ok, I've been there. If you're really into Cuban history, probably a must see.

The square is of an enormous dimension, but its only real attraction are the large portraits of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos as well as the tall Jose Marti statue.

This is where Fidel gave the hours long speeches. Two buildings have outlines of the heads of 2 "heros of the Revolution" It is primarily a large flat space with a very large monument to the Revolution. It is also the place where the vintage cars stage for short trips for tourists. That is a sight that is definitely worth... More

Visiting this square and hearing of the history that unfolded here will make you want to learn more about the revolution in Cuba. A fitting tribute to many significant figures in the rich history of Cuba.

One day before leaving Cuba, my friend and I rent an old pink car and book one hour ride around Havanna. At Plaza de la Revolucion is a big parking space, where they stop for a while. You can go around taking some pictures of famous CHE at the wall and on the other side is monument of the Camilo... More

It was a thrill to be standing in the center of this plaza. Just knowing that Fidel spoke here gave us goose bumps. There are depictions of Che on a building overlooking the square. Also is the tower. And to see all the old-time cars lined up ready for photos or fir hire - lots of fun!!

Just a big open area. There area few buildings with visual intrigue but not much to see otherwise. I get that Fidel used to talk here for six hours at a time and that gives the place prominence - but stay in a placed like Old Havana before you'd think about going to what amounts to a large parking lot...

We did this plaza as part of our old American car tours and I don't think it's worth a special trip. It's the place Castro held his mass rallies. It's like a huge parade ground with individual structures dotted around to mark the revolution. Obviously important to Cubans and their history but not aesthetically very impressive.
