Everyone goes to the Plaza de la Revolución to take the photo of Che Guevara on the side of the Ministry of the Interior Building. Across the Plaza is a tall monument to Jose Marti, one of the main figures in Cuba's independence movement. Although undoubtedly significant, it's not worth much more than a passing look if you don't have... More

This is really the place to learn & understand how Cuba evolved. It is full of facts & stories of the historical struggles. The view from the top of the monument is great. You can see the massive Christopher Columbus Cemetery & lots more of historical sites. Wonderful views!

This grand monument completed in 1958 to the father of Cuban independence is ignored by tourists at the Plaza de la Revolucion. Everyone flocks to the Camilo Cienfuegos & Che Guevara on the building faces. Take the time to visit the museum and understand there was a Revolution of Independence from Spain long before the present Revolution.

Obviously one of the main stops for the vintage car tour set! Where Fidel would speak to the people and everything was made to stop so he had your undivided attention as we were told.

You can pay 1 peso to look around and 3 to go up in the lift to see the views. It's got great views of the whole city from the top and a bonus is it's air conditioned!

If you are on any sort of tour you will come to this place. It is not the monument so much as the huge plaza that sort of double as a parking lot and a place for classic cars to wait for tourists to take pictures of them or for them to used as taxis.

This is such a terrific monument we were really surprised at the magnitude of it. It really is something to see and experience. The whole plaza de la Revolución is something to witness.

Considered and revered by Cubans as the person who made their eventual "freedom" possible, the monument to Jose Marti has pride of place in Revolution Square. It is a fitting symbol of their struggle and is surrounded by buildings bearing Fidel castroi and Che Guevarra. A must visit location in Havana....

This is where the Revolution took place and this is where the Cubans heart is when they speak reverently about their political heroes
