Adjacent to Revolution Square. Kept in good repair. One of the highest structures in Cuba. Marti was a key figure in the Revolution. behind the Revolution.

We saw this grey concrete looking monument when visiting the Plaza de Revolution in the Vedado area of Havana. Our tour bus drove by both and did not stop for us to do a walk about. As we passed by, I was impressed with the height of the star-shaped memorial built on a slight rise so that stairs are needed... More

Occupying the centre of the huge and empty Plaza de Revolution it is a befitting statue for Jose Marti the national hero (of the 19th century) of the Republic which led the successful fight of Cuba for freedom from Spain, which you acknowledge the minute you land in Havana at the , why not , Jose Marti international airport

Our guide didn't tell us much about this monument, and it didn't look like there was much to see. If you're really interested, you need to find out more online. There are other monuments nearby.

This huge monument looks like a stack of Leggos to me, and is just one of many monuments to the revolutionary (not the Fidel revolution, but an earlier one) hero Jose Marti. I have been a fan of his poetry since my college days some 50 years ago, and it seemed strange to me to see him memorialized more for... More

This is a very important monument in Havana and should not be missed. It will only take about 30-45 minutes to walk around and see this monument. It is a free attraction.

This was one of the buildings that really caught our attention on our havana tour last week as it stands so tall in the middle of Vedado. The architecture is as unique as the story behind the construction of it and well worth stopping by.

This was our first stop directly off the plane starting our 10 day group tour of Cuba. A good starting point. There was no doubt we were in Cuba. It is a popular standing area for many of the beautiful old classic cars and also a popular stop when being taken on a ride in one of the cars. We... More
