Jose Julian Marti

jose marti


José Julián Martí, a Cuban patriot, journalist, and poet, fought for the liberation of Cuba from Spanish rule. The statue shows the moment when Martí was mortally wounded in battle. As monuments to Latin American heroes, it is fitting that the three horsemen in the Artists' Gate Plaza, Martí, Simon Bolivar, and José de San Martin, stand at the head of the Avenue of the Americas.
