Plaza de la Revolucion Tips (7)

MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR

Favorite thing One of the buildings in Revolution Square is the Ministerio del Interior or MINISTRY OF THE INTERIOR. It would just be another building, if not for the giant ironwork mural of the likeness of Ernest (Che) Guevara (1928 to 1967 ) Cuba's revolutionary Hero.
His motto " Hasta La Victoria Siempre" - "Towards Victory Always" is inscripted below his portrait.
It was the most photographed building in the Square.

JOSE' MARTI MEMORIAL

Favorite thing Located in the Plaza de la Revolucion, the JOSE' MARTI MEMORIAL is a star-shaped tower dedicated to Jose' Marti, a national hero of Cuba. The highest point in Havana, the tower is 109 metres ( 358 feet) high, with an observation deck on the top floor, which gives wonderful views over the city of Havana.
Next to the tower is a giant marble statue of Jose' Marti.

Favorite thing Here it is El Mural with part of José Marti's writes....

Inside the Memorial is not allowed to bring all kind of bags with you. You'll have to leave them outside to the guardian. But fortunately you can take your camera with you!

Habana: Plaza de la Revolucion

Favorite thing The Jose Marti's statue is surrounded by 6 columns and by numerous palms. This statue is in white marmo, was built by Juan Josè Sicre is 18 metres high.

Inside the memorial you can visit the museum. You'll have 2 rooms dedicated to Josè Marti, the third room is dedicated to the history of the monument and of the square too, the fourth room is dedicated to contemporary art's exhibitions. In the entrance you'll also find el mural with 89 writes of Josè Marti. If you wanna visit only the museum you'll have to pay 3 dollars, if besides the museum you wanna go up to the top of the memorial (I recommend it!!!) you'll have to pay 5 dollars. An elevator will bring you 'till the top at 139 metres!!!

Habana: Plaza de la Revolucion

Favorite thing Plaza de la Revolucion José Marti is from 1959 the principal political, administrative and cultural center of Cuba. Born in 1952 on the project of the Achitect Aquiles Maza as Plaza Civica, before the revolucionary's triumph it was called Plaza de la Republica.

This square does not have great architectural values, but it's attractive for its historical and symbolic importance. It has been the scenery of the first popular demonstration after the revolucionary's triumph, and of the celebrations for thr alphabetisation's campain in 1961, Che Guevara was simphatized under the statue of Josè Marti.

Starting from 1959 in lots of political, military, cultural occasions the square fills up of millions of people, first of all the actual president Fidel Castro next to Josè Marti Statue. The 25 January 1988 the Pope Giovanni Paolo II was there.....too...

Arrive well before 17:00

Favorite thing If you plan on visiting the Memorial Jose Marti which is located on the Plaza de la Revolucion arrive well before 5:00pm.
Hour 9:30 am - 5:00 pm Mon - Sat.
We showed up at 4:45 and were not aloud to approach the square. We were whistled at and shouted at from all directions.
At one point we were told to cross to the other side of street.
It seems they take closing time very seriously.
