Visit the great public expanse of Revolution Plaza, which provides the Cuban government with a base of operations and doubles as a site for large-scale political rallies and state speeches. Observe the giant steel depictions of Che Guevara and fellow guerillero, Camilo Cienfuegos, which adorn the facades of the governmental buildings. Gaze up at the towering 109 m (358 ft) star-shaped memorial, dedicated to national hero Jose Marti. Bring a camera to capture the square's architecture, as well as the beautiful examples of 1950s American cars waiting to whisk you off into the city. Take a look at our Havana road trip planning website to schedule your visit to Revolution Plaza and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Revolution Plaza Reviews
Another gathering spot for the fun Vintage car scene. Don’t forget to negotiate if you want to book a tour and look for the cars in the best condition. Lots to choose but many are not all that... more »
First place to visit when you enter the city. Plaza is quite big with a very deep historical meaning for Cuba. Che’s and Castro’s memorials and Jose Marti statue are the main attractions. more »
