Revolution Plaza, Havana

(3.9/5 based on 3,200+ 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.

  • cette place que l'on a vue à la télévision lorsque Fidel Castro faisait ses discours de plusieurs heures est un peu triste dépeuplée 
  • One of the most interesting sights in Havana. You really have to pay to get good views of the Granma. 
  • la Plaza de la Revolución es una gran explanada dispuesta para acojer actos multitudinarios, no hay nada interesante excepto el gran monumento que la preside, asi como las figuras del Che , Cifuentes....  more »

  • 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
