The monument to Cuba's national hero is very large and somewhat eccentric in design. The nearby streets offer a fine variety of classic late 50s American automobiles, many of then parked taxis waiting for customers--a delight for photographers.

The structural building of this place is outstanding! It is also a library. I did not have time to go inside, which saddened me but I speculate I would stay here for hours.

While this concrete memorial is vast, it was easy to imagine huge crowds gathering for the revolution or pope visit. This park felt very Cuban even though many other sights are more comfortable, historic and artistic.

Yet another monument that is aimed to impress with size rather than creativity. Not a miss if you skip it!

We went here primarily to get from the top a 360 degree of Havana. You pay extra to take photos (common in Cuba) The day we arrived the lift to the top was closed. That's Cuba!

Do a drive by in a convertible or open top bus to get the magnitude of the monument. Get a guide book to gain the most information about the site.

The Vedado and everything around it is the Heart of the post-Revolution Cuba. All the Plaza the la Revolucion with the Ministries and Monument to Jose Marti are altogether a World Classic that must be visited and live up to it!

Good to see the revolutionary square, this monument was not inspiring, but there is a chance for a photo with a 50's car 10 min stop at most.

The building looks very high and massive, you can go there by old fashion car and take nice pictures there.
