Camilo Cienfuegos Sculpture at Revolution Square in Havana, Cuba

Most of the nearly 18 acres of Revolution Square is open space, making it the perfect place for large assemblies of over a million people. The plaza was also a favorite location for speeches delivered by Fidel Castro. One of two huge sculptures overlooking Plaza de la Revolución is this steel outline of Camilo Cienfuegos on the side of the Ministry of Informatics and Communications building. The 100 ton sculpture by Enrique Ávila Gonzales was erected in 2009. Camilo Cienfuegos was a key figure during the Cuban Revolution. After Castro’s victory in 1959, Cienfuegos became the leader of the rebel army for a few months until his plane disappeared at sea. Beneath this tribute to Cienfuegos are the words “Vas bien, Fidel.” This means “You’re doing fine, Fidel.”
