Comments

The Revolution Square is one of the biggest in world, with 72,000 sq. meters, features the Martí monument, 112.75m high (141.995 including lights and flags), and is the highest point at Havana.

Out of its huge dimensions, also is noticeable by the view of the 2 shapes of Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos placed on the buildings of Ministries of the Interior and Communications. Those shapes include the quotations "Hasta la Victoria, siempre" (Until Victory, ever) below Che, and "Vas bien Fidel" (You're doing fine, Fidel) below Camilo
