We did not have time to stop and totally enjoy a visit to this monument but it is a great back drop for photos when visiting the Plaza.

Jose Marti Memorial is actually the tallest structure in Cuba, atower in a star-shaped plan. The ground floor is an exhibition hall about Jose Marti. However, due to the damage of elevator, it is not allowed to go up to the viewing terrace at the top floor, where you suppose can have a panoramic view over the city. Too bad.

Another memorial structure at Revolution Square. The Cubans take great pleasure in their independence and are very proud at displaying it.

Going there only to see the monument is not worth doing it. But if you are on the plaza de la revolucion you can admire also that monument. Quite interesting architecture

This 109m monument to the apostle of Cuban independence looms large over Plaza de la Revolucion and can't be missed as you tour plaza.

If you are in Havana I would say go and see these three famous buildings they are all in the same area.
