You can tell that Cubans take great pride in their memorials and this one is spectacular! Beautiful tribute to a famous leader.

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

Well it's a monument. Big pointy and revolutionary. The plaza around it is good with portraits of revolutionary heroes on buildings. A must do in Havana. For a good experience go there in a yellow coco taxi

An interesting museum where you can have a guide accompany you if you wish (we were given the option when we paid for our tickets at the venue). The lifts to the top of the tower haven't worked for a year or so - it doesn't seem like there are many plans kicking around to get it working anytime soon... More

Read my review about the revolution square as this is at the same place. You arrive at the square and Jose Marti statue is here. Museum is small enough to do in less than an hour. You pay 3-5 CUC and photos allowed. Sit where Fidel sat and where he gave his speech to millions.
