Memorial a José Martí

Monument in Vedado
Diana Cabrera Hernandez

Center stage in Plaza de la Revolución is this monument, which at 138.5m is Havana's tallest structure. Fronted by an impressive 17m marble statue of a seated Martí in a pensive Thinker pose, the memorial houses a museum (the definitive word on Martí in Cuba) and a 129m lookout (reached via a small CUC$2 lift) with fantastic city views.
