Plaza de la Revolucion - City Plaza Havana - Cuba

The Plaza de la Revolucion is a square that is big, wide and of Soviet sparcity. The square’s main features are the monument to Jose Mari and the memorial to Che Guevara, both of which dominate. It is from this square that Fidel Castro and now his brother Raul gave/continue to give their important speeches. During such events, Cubans would cram into the square and on the outskirts to listen, with speeches often delivered by loud speakers to the more distant parts. The plaza houses a fair few government buildings, including the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Communications, among others. On May Day and on other important occasions, this plaza is an important congregation spot for major rallies.
