Revolution Plaza, Havana
(3.9/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Esplanade of tar, it seems an immense unused parking. Monument dedicated to the memory of a past that was! Posters of Che and Cienfuegos are nice to look at. But the visit should not take more than 5 minutes.

  • Huge area, not really too much to see but equally it can't be missed either - the place where Castro (and others) addressed the people - in our case where the Cubans were queuing to pay their respects...  more »
  • At first glance not particularly interesting place, simply square, the monument to Jose Marti and metal installations on homes) Was passing by this place at the cemetery Colón and very happy that it turned out to be)) really feels just scale incident, Cuban spirit and spaciousness of Havana! Groups of tourists, Che Guevara and Fidel will awaken and your agility on the skin)

  • A must-do in Havana. This is the square where Fidel gave his biggest speeches. The scope of the plaza is astounding. Be careful when taking pictures up close of the buildings. The police do not like it.
  • Plaza de la Revolución -- Havana's parade square. It has been said the a million people have squeezed into this place to hear Castro speak. It's about as exciting as a parking lot.
  • Construction of the square, originally called Plaza Civica, & José Martí monument 18m commenced during the presidency of Batista. completed in 1959. an elevator allows access the top of the tower 109m
  • An interesting location with real historical significance.
  • A good place to check out but not too much to see though
