Come on, it's the Plaza de la Revolucion! Fidel gave is famous speeches here (lasting 6 hours long!) and the portraits for Cienfuegos and Che dominate the landscape. Than right across the street (be careful pedestrians are not priority) is the Jose Marti memorial.

A huge imposing square with the giant che and Camino on the edge. The imposing tower does cost to enter 3 cuc for the museum and 1 cuc for entry to take photos but you can't actually go into the tower which was disappointing as the locals thought you could

The Plaza itself is impressive because it is huge. But the real attraction is the presence of lots of American Oldtimers. And the huge depictions of Camilo Cienfuegos and of Che Guevara.

Other than the tower and the two faces on the buildings behind it there's not much to see. It's literally a big parking lot of historical importance.

I imagine this would be a different experience if there was a 100,000 people there at the time but its worth a visit. We did it on a bus tour and jumped off for a wander.

This is a must visit to enjoy the vastness of this square , at the same time there is always a large selection of vintage cars. One can enjoy and take great pictures for free. This place is also use for all major ceremonies and public activities.
