Revolution Plaza, Havana

3.3
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.

  • It’s the expansive plaza where Fidel gave his 8 hour speeches to breathless audiences. The art on the building usually in the background is Che himself. But you knew that.  more »
