(4,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Put Revolution Plaza on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Havana holiday planner.

  • Without people this area looks rather sad ! One can imagine the big communist gatherings lasting 6+ hrs which must have been wonderful (but boring). It served its purpose !  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • The square itself was mostly empty. They were prepping for a workers day celebration. Near the plaza there were many classic cars to take pictures in/with
  • Its just a gigantic parking lot with a memorial on one side and 2 building on the other side with Che and some other guys face. The only nice thing about it is theres a spot with all types of 50's classic cars as taxi's.
  • La plaza de la revolución con el monumento a José Martí. Rodeada de importantws edificios como la biblioteca Nacional y el Ministerio del Interior.
