Plaza Mariana Grajales is the largest public square in with a huge and ostentatious Monument in honor of the Cuban Heroes, glorifying the Brigada Fronteriza that defends the supposedly advancing trench of socialism on the American continent. Yes this large monument dominates Plaza Mariana Grajales at just under 1km northwest of the train station and opposite Hotel Guantanamo.
It’s one of the more impressive ‘Revolution squares’ on the island. Oddly enough, this is an immense green space in a city where there are very few parks at all. You’ll see locals playing dominos, arguing about baseball and simply “living” at the Plaza Mariana Grajales.
