Finished in 1958 this memorial to Cuba's national hero is a 109m tower of grey marble in the shape of five-pointed star. Inside a lift takes you to an enclosed viewing area which provides fantastic views of Havana. You are given a certificate of your visit on the way down.

On the ground floor there are 2 rooms dedicated to Marti, a room describing the history of the square & tower, the final room displays contemporary Cuban art. There is also an auditorium used for concerts & poetry readings.

To go onto the outside base of the monument it is 1 CUC. Once inside it costs 3 CUC to look round the ground floor & a further 2 CUC to go to the top.
