Historic Site · Landmark
Visit the great public expanse of Revolution Plaza Havana, 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 kind of like going to Beijing and not bothering to see Tiananmen Square. It isn't that much to look at, being just a huge grey square surrounded by concrete, but it's the historical...  more »

  • A massive open place. I took a long walk to get there but you can also take a shared taxi, since the place is pretty far away from the center of Havana. I found it worth going just for the history of it and obviously for the pics. From there you can continue walking to cemetery Colon, definitely worth visiting.
  • Tons of History on tap here. Most of the major government buildings and departments/agencies surround the square. Having a tour guide or doing a little research on Wikipedia would be a good idea to be able to appreciate all that this place represents. Definitely a must-stop on your Havana tour!
  • Came out here first for May Day back in 2015 and it was wild. I've been to Labour Day parades in Toronto and Montreal but this was next level. Visited it more recently in the quiet times where I snapped this pic of Camilo Cienfuegos. It's a lovely bit of history in Havana, teeming with life when filled. It is a giant square tho so be mindful of the sun when you're out here as there is no natural shade.
  • Great historical sight! So much to see... the old fort is amazing!
  • Nice place.. open square... lots of old vintage car parked in the parking lot.
