We stayed in Havana for nine days so had plenty of time to cover most attractions. We caught a local ferry across and walked up the road to the statue. Interesting history with the 1950 Batista president comissioning the statue (a copy of the one in Rio de Janeiro) to try to gain popular support while Castro and che were taking over the island. It was made in Italy and blessed by the pope.

We had a tour guide on our first day in Havana and this is where he took us at the start -the statue (marble, 60 feet tall) is impressive enough, but it’s more useful for the purposes of orientation, as you get a whole perspective on the scale and appearance of Havana from that side of the river. If you’re travelling independently it’s very easy to take the local ferry that crosses the harbour, and it’s a fairly easy walk up the hill to the monument itself. The ferry ride is worth it in its own right by the way - mostly used by locals and very cheap.

One of the better sites in Havana. Always wondered why Castro didn’t destroy it. It is tall and overlooks the Harbor.

A good and interesting place to visit as the area has Che Guevara`s Havana home within its boundary as well as a lot of miltary hardware from the cold war period including parts of the American Spy plane shot down in the 1960`s by Fidel Castro`s Army. Also on show is a Cold War period Russian Mig Fighter as well as tanks,rockets etc etc.

For 20cent we caught the ferry from the old town across to predominantly see the fortresses. The statue is free to view and no as exiting or large as others around the world. However if you are walking this way you visit.
