Revolution Square, a landmark of Havana's new city center, symbolizes Cuba's independence. Surrounded by green trees, the square has a simple, open atmosphere, and classic American-made cars add a splash of color. Visitors can contemplate the fate of the revolutionaries who risked their lives to escape the domination of the great powers while viewing portraits of Cuba's beloved revolutionary leaders and a museum commemorating José Martí, a hero of the War of Independence.
