Fodor's Review

Just about every city on the island has a Revolution Square, a vast expanse of space and perhaps every community's most prominent marker of Cuban socialism. This one in the Reparto Sueño neighborhood was the site of Pope John Paul II's Mass celebrated here in Santiago. Towering above the plaza is the dramatic monument to Major General Antonio Maceo, one of the heroes of the wars of independence. It shows the general on his horse, going down in a battlefield portrayed by 23 steel machetes that rise from the ground around him.
