La Habana (Havana), the Cuban capital
The José Martí Memorial, dedicated to the national hero of Cuba, on the northern side of the Plaza de la Revolución in the Vedado area of Havana. It consists of a 109 metre high star-shaped tower, a statue of Martí surrounded by six columns, and gardens. Construction began in 1953 on the 100th anniversary of Martí's birth on Catalan Hill, named because of a chapel built there by Catalan immigrants. This was demolished and the monument was completed in 1958 during the final days of the Batista dictatorship.
