Revolution Plaza, Havana

3.9
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.

  • The Plaza de la Revolución is obligatory stop in Cuba. That's where the famous image of Che with the phrase "Hasta la victoria siempre. Is a large square, where several old cars are stopped. It's beautiful to tirae photos. It was in this square that the Pope celebrated mass in San Francisco your visit to Cuba.

  • Plaza de la Revolucion there is nothing monumental if not huge and open space it occupies, with the monument in the middle. The appearance is still more exciting for the visitor who has followed from afar the occurrence and evolution of Castro's revolution, is seeing how kept alive the memory and the cult for the fathers of the revolution which are still represented with large panels with their stylized image on public buildings and ministries that have been running at the end of the military phase. We see then that the heroes become legendary on the island are always there to remember their passage in the history ... Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Cienfuegos ....

  • Revolution square is monumental and it is interesting to consider historical events which happened there. On the day we visited, only two busloads of people were wandering about the plaza which really emphasized the size. Government buildings bordering the square have interesting art works showing past leaders.
  • Revolution Plaza is a great place if you are interested in the Cuban history. Nice architecture. Only down side is that You need to pay to use the washroom.
  • Amazing place with amazing history for one of the greatest elected leaders of all times! His excellency Fidel Castro held great, intellectually robust discourses and the people would flock by the millions (all by their own free will of course) to hear this amazing genius speak eloquent poetry that would just melt your eardrums! All hail this great fallen leader!
  • Take some nice photos with Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos (commonly mistaken as Fidel Castro) cast iron portrait. Take photos to Jose Marti Memorial too. And soak in the atmosphere of the huge parade square where Fidel Castro held his famous speeches years ago.
  • It's a testament to the determination and strength in the belief of an ideal or purpose; no matter how small or massive that ideal is!!
