PLAZA OF THE REVOLUTION
This is quite an emblematic place for the Cubans due to the fact that on this wide esplanade many political, cultural or recreational acts have taken place.
The Plaza is surrounded by many buildings, such as the National Theatre (Teatro Nacional) and the National Library (Biblioteca Nacional), as well as the Ministries of Communications, the Revolutionary Armed Forces and of the Interior, whose facade features the figure of the symbolic warrior Ernesto Che Guevara.
A gigantic sculpture of José Martí, Cuba’s National Hero, at the foot of the challenging monument, from whose lookout a good part of the city can be appreciated, preside over the Plaza, the image of which is photographed daily by people who have come from every corner of the earth.
