Neat!

Really cool to see, worth the stop on your tour of Havana. We just stopped and took a few pictures and then continued on.

This is a monument to Jose Marti who was an 19th century revolutionary who led a revolt against the Spanish. Our tour leader did not recommend going into the museum so we did not

The memorial isn't great but it is impressive. The only reason to go here during the morning hours is to see the most beautiful old Cuban cars that are around. You can do deals for a rid or just take photos of them

A huge, beautiful monument to a great poet and a true believer in freedom for his people. Even though I believe his martyrdom was not neccessary, he was and is recognized as a hero. His bust is at every school in Cuba.

Very tall monument to the hero who helped release Cuba from the grasp of Spain. Odd to see buzzards flying overhead the day we visited the plaza, which is lined with metal sculptures of Fidel and Che on two government buildings. One man freed Cubans from Spain, and the others ... freed Cubans from Batista?

Honestly OK but Havana is overun with revolutionary monuments which dilutes the attraction ultimately.

This is pretty much an obligatory stop if you're spending a few days in Havana. Theres not much to see or do, so don't plan to spend long there. Just take a few photos at the well-designed monument, and also photos with the famous building murals of Che Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos. The museum of Jose Marti was closed when... More

This place is in the middle of nowhere, way outside urban Havana. The cab rides are expensive and there is little to see. I wouldn't waste my time with all the awesome stuff in Havana.
