Visit Revolution Square

Plaza de la revolucion Habana

Towering above the city on Catalanes Hill, the Plaza de la Revolución is Cuba’s political nerve center. Considering its political importance it is a key location for May Day marches and other national festivities and a “must stop” on any travel itinerary. The overwhelming Memorial y Museo a José Martí is the centerpiece of the whole square. Attracting as much attention as Marti’s memorial is the bronze silhouette of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, created by the Cuban sculptor Rafael Avila and is now pinned to the Ministry of Interior edifice in the Plaza de la Revolución.
