Plaza de la Revolución

Interesting
This vast square can accommodate 20 000 people. At the centre, a huge statue of Antonio Maceo encourages the masses to join the battle. This monument made from 23 iron bars representing machetes recalls the 23 March 1878, the date of the Protesta de Baraguá. Beneath it, the Memorial to Antonio Maceo retraces the life of this hero of Cuba's independence.
