My wife and myself visited here as part of a Thomas Cook tour it's very interesting with lots of history. Spend time walking around and reading about Cuba's historic past.

This is an interesting area to visit while in Havana. You can picture Fidel holding court with thousands and thousand of people in the square.

Disappointed . Building is under renovation...very noisy. Entrance fee - US$8 equivalent which is expensive for Cuba.Mainly a collection of photos. If you already familiar with the History of the Revolution you will be disappointed. After visiting the Che memorial and the museum at the...More

There is nothing to really see here. Most people stop here simply for the photos with steel memorials of Che Guevara, and Camilo Cienfuegos (no, it's not Castro). However, across the street is a tall tower where you can take an elevator to the top...More

Response from Leigh N |
When I went here in September we hired a classic car. Nice way to do it since it is more of a drive-by kind of place in my opinion. As far as cash, CUC is the only way to go. I had 500 Euro from a previous trip which made... More
