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 tower is found on one side of Revolucion Plaza. The square itself is a huge blank slab of concrete, with a few American cars touting for business. The tower itself is a monument, but does not look as if it has any other use. There are a number of interesting very large 'pictures[?] of famous people from the revolution... More

Once you have beheld the magnificent structures along the Malecon and in Habana Vieja, you are left scratching your head over this one. It's okay and I appreciate it, but it is not something you look at and say, "Wow, that's attractive."

Marti was fighting Spain to gain Independencd for Cuba. This was the time in history when the US got involved due to the sinking of the Maine. Teddy Roosevelt was sent with the rough riders to help Cuba achieve their goal of Independence. Great photo stop.

The curators and staff personnel are very knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions you may have.

Well… it's a monument. Worth a look. You can see it from different places is the city. The best place up close is unfortunately in a large parking lot (very hot in the summer).

This is the most visited monument in Cuba both by locals and foreigners alike. It's smack in the center of Plaza de La Revolución, rising from an elevated platform with a marble sculpture of José Martí atop, front and centre and 2 sets of steps leading up to the base where there is a small museum/chapel with paintings and portraits,...

This place is impressive. The monument is a very tall building. We were not able to go to the top as the guide told us the elevator is being repaired and should be working by September. There is a museum which was very interesting. Besides the history of Marti they have art exhibits. The entrance to the monument is CUC... More
