Parque John Lennon, Havana

(260+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Beatles fans won't want to miss Parque John Lennon, where a monument of the iconic musician sits on a bench. John Lennon enjoyed a legacy of adoration from the Cuban public, despite the country's ban on the Beatles during the 1960s and 70s. In 2000, Fidel Castro himself unveiled the monument, sculpted by Cuban artist José Villa Soberón and marking the 20th anniversary of Lennon's assassination in New York City. The inscription underneath cites lines from Lennon's beloved ode to peace, "Imagine," in both English and Spanish.

  • Parque Lennon is probably a little overdone. Apart from a statue of John Lennon with real glasses on his nose there's not much to see unless you're a hard nosed tourist .
  • The statue of Lennon is great, but it was so refreshing to see kids playing in the park and having a great time. It's hard not to smile when you're here because everyone is having a great day.
  • Around the corner is The Yellow Submarine cool night club with live classic rock music playing everynite. The park bench is perfect for pictures and singing old Beatle songs
  • Un parque en el centro de la habana donde puedes sentarte junto a una estatua de Lennon.
  • Really nice park in Havana. Interesting statue of John Lennon.
