Great place to stop and take stock the history of the island. Most car tours stop here for photo's. Not much else here through.

We hired a classic car and it took us around the main sites on a two hour tour. Stopped for photos at the Plaza de la revolucion. Nice to get some pics of the buildings but wasn’t somewhere that you’d want to hang around for...More

The iconic image of Che pairs with one of Fidel that somehow never shows up in peoples fotos- perhaps the artist didn't capture him as well yet there he is, surprising as can be. These two points of the plaza triangulate to a tower honoring...More

This is a large plaza with depictions of Fidel and other revolutionary fighters depicted as in this photo. The is a tall monument there and is a great spot to view numerous vintage automobiles.

The two giant pictures on the facades are impressive in person. Bring a guide to really appreciate the rich cultural and historic background of the plaza. Worth a (brief) stop if you know what you're looking at.

The plaza is a large open space. It has a monument on one side and two building with revolutionary images. It has historical significance with Castro and his speeches, that he did here. But, it is somewhat of a big parking lot! It is fun...More

This is a must see when you go to Cuba! I believe there are about four different buildings located in the plaza. Try to have a guide if you go to explain the history behind each building.

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
