Taking center stage at Plaza de la Revolution, this is Havana's tallest structure, affording a terrific vantage point over Havana. The statue of Jose Marti in front takes on a thinker pose.

Jose Marti is one of the great Cuban patriots and nationalists – he was originally a poet, but in the last couple of decades of the 19th century became fully engaged in revolutionary movements in Cuba. After building up a band of supporters in the Sierra Maestra mountains, just as Fidel would do almost sixty years later, he was killed in battle in 1895. You’ll see a statue to Jose Marti in almost every Cuban town, but here in Havana he has been memorialised in a museum built in the base of a tower which is the highest look-out point in Havana. We didn’t have enough time to visit the museum, which contains a rage of exhibits from Marti’s life, but it’s definitely worth taking the elevator to the viewing point at the top for excellent 360 degree views of the city. Below the Jose Marti tower, as you leave, it’s worth finding the rows of seats for dignitaries, from where Fidel used to stir the masses with his revolutionary oratory.

Marti is considered a Cuban national hero due to his involvement in the fight for independence from Spain. Fidel Castro used to hold his long drawn-out rally-speeches here. Plaza de la Revolution is not just this large square; it is also the name of the district it is in.

From the top of the tower reached via an internal lift you get stunning panoramic views of the city in all directions. On the ground floor there is also a very interesting museum. Takes about an hour to wander through the museum and go to the top! A must see attraction!

The monument to José Marti, a national hero in Cuba’s struggle for independence from Spain, built by Castro in Plaza de la Revolucion, is the tallest point in Havana, like the Washington Monument in, wait for it, Washington D.C. You don't have to stop: you can take a picture from a vintage Chevy taxi cab like I did as we drove around in the twilight. You don't want to be walking here during the mid day sun as there is no shade in the open plaza. My mom remembers visiting José Marti’s house, which is near her childhood home, as part of a school trip. It’s one of the few buildings in her neighborhood still in pristine condition. It's in a residential area blocks from the Capitol. Can you believe school trips are part of the education system in Cuba since then, as they are here in the states?
