Antonio Maceo Revolution Square, Santiago de Cuba

(3.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Visit Antonio Maceo Revolution Square, a giant historic plaza of Havana. The open space stretches far and wide and serves as a prominent place for large-scale political rallies, public events, and even concerts. Today the square is home to numerous government monuments and buildings. On the north side sits the Ministerio del Interior featuring a huge mural of Che Guevara with the words “Hasta la Victoria Siempre.” Take an elevator to the top of Jose Marti Memorial, which at 109 m (358 ft) high offers spectacular views of the city. The most important events in the square are held on May 1st (International Workers' Day) and July 26th (the commemoration of the attack on the Moncada barracks).

  • I'm extremely dissapointed because I came here expecting it to be very square but to me it was much too circular. Very misleading. Square up.

  • Lugar horrivel, além de roubarem me confundiram com o ladrao que me assaltou. Tenho pena de quem mora num inferno desses, o lugar é tão ruim, mas tão ruim mesmo que em toda Cuba esse foi o único ponto que achei para comentar. Tão porco que nem Street View tem essa disgreta, porque existe o lixo mas esse lugar é o chorume que escorre desse lixo.
