EPIC MONUMENT

As you can imagine, this is a must see whilst in Santiago. Take loads of pics and just take in the magnitude of this monument.

I have to say I was amazed by its size. It is huge. A very interesting place to see. We had a great tour guide who told us all about the square, so it was a very enjoyable visit. It is also very clean and very well kept.

Not enough time to do a thorough visit. They have an elevator to the top but there wasn't enough time for us to this as the lineups were big when we were there on tour. Visited 2008

A must-see in Santiago and impossible to miss. It only takes 10 minutes to stop and walk around and get a sense of the size of this memorial. Worth doing.

Not sure what else to say other than it is a plaza. You can definitely see the Russian influence in the statue.

The metal spires sticking up into the sky represent bayonets. There is an eternal flame with an entrance off the street but looks better from above by climbing a few steps.

Large monumental grounds. Because of the historical backgrounds a must see but not really nice when there are no functions.

Or the plaza that honors the fight for the human soul. In addition to war heroes, the plaza is the site for Teatro Heredia, a modern Cuban theater.

This Plaza de la Revolucion is stunning visually, on a huge scale that is difficult to appreciate from photos. It has been the site of many important meetings and events and is a great area to walk to see Cuban life swirling around you. It commemorates a hero of Cuba's earlier revolution, their struggle for independence from Spain.
