Quick photo stop

Quick photo stop, then move on. It's an impressive monument, but not much else. There are some other interesting things in the plaza as well to view while you are here though.

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

It is situated in the main plaza and it is worth taking some photos because of the wonderful view there.

The building itself is impressive. We had a look inside but there was no English on the displays only Spanish. It did look good though if you do speak Spanish. The tower wasnt open either but I think it was just for maintenance. 3cuc entry fee for museum.

Sits in the middle of the famous liberation square. Normally engulfed with classic Cuban/ US cars. Poignant homage to their first official leader.

The sheer size of this monument is quite breathtaking. A must see when in Havana, easily reached by foot, or by jumping on the Havana tour bus. Offers some great photo opportunities of revolution plaza, the surrounding area and of course, the monument itself! After a peek in, we passed on the museum at the base of the monument as... More

The memorial contains manuscripts, documents, engravings, portraits and mementos of Jose Marti and occupies the ground floor of the 139 meter-high tower which, on top of a 30 meter-high hill,...

I cannot recommend Cuba enough - great diving, lovely people, and the architecture, culture and historical sites are a time capsule. With the changes coming fast, I recommend visiting before there is a McDonalds on each street corner.
