Besides the 2 murals there really isn't much to see or learn. The monument is also here but again, no information available

While in Havana, spending time at this square is a must. It is a massive plaza where many rallies took place; Castro addresses to the people etc.. It is not a showy line up of statutes etc as Fidel Castro was a man who did not want his picture pasted everywhere nor did he want a statue made in his... More

Big open space with a needle like monument across the road. The base of the monument is built like a big dias - this is where Fidel Castro stood to addressed various rallies.

We were on a trip to Havana and we're lucky that Revolution Square was open as it had been closed the previous day. It's an amazing space the square with lots of people milling around. At the top of the square where the busses are parked there are plenty of classic cars where you can take photos of them and... More

This is a must visit place in Habana. Has a great historic value. There is a museum inside the tower. You can take pictures here

The square is notable as being where many political rallies take place and Fidel Castro and other political figures address Cubans. The square is dominated by the José Martí Memorial, which features a 109 m tall tower and an 18 m statue. The National Library and many government ministries are located in and around the Plaza. Behind the memorial is... More

Worth seeing as a history is there. Of course This is the main reason. It is communistic creation. But worth visiting.

The faces on the buildings was the best part of the square for me. There is a lot of new government buildings yet the rest of Havana is quite poor looking. You do get to see quite a few american cars around this area too

I love Cuba, but on Plaza de la Revolucion there is nothing special to see, only if you like history behind it. I think it is ok to see it when you are passing by with taxi and spend 10 min. If you want to go in Jose Marti memorial prepare that no bags (even small purse) can't be brought.... More

We stopped here as part of our city/old car tour and walked around, took pictures, etc. but wouldn't consider it a "must-stop" location--everything can be seen from your cab as you pass through to/from the airport, so I wouldn't make a special trip here. While historically significant, there isn't much to see.
