On Tuesday, King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain started their three days State visit to Cuba. The Spanish Royal Couple arrived in Havana on Monday Night.
The day began with a visit to the José Martí Mausoleum, where King Felipe and Queen Letizia paid a floral tribute to the poet José Martí. José Julián Martí Pérez was a Cuban poet, essayist, journalist, translator, professor, and publisher. He is considered a Cuban national hero and an important figure in Latin American literature.
During the tribute, the National Anthems of both the countries were played and King Felipe placed a crown with a ribbon with the Flag of Spain. The José Martí Monument is a monument to the Cuban thinker and poet José Martí (1853 – 1895), national and revolutionary hero. Located on the north side of the Plaza de la Revolución in the neighbourhood of El Vedado, in Havana, it is a star-shaped tower, a statue of Martí surrounded by six columns and gardens. This gesture towards the national hero opens all high-level visits of foreign leaders to the Caribbean country.
Next, the royal couple headed towards the Palacio de la Revolucion, the official residence of Cuban President, where they were officially welcomed by the President of the Republic of Cuba, Diaz-Canel Miguel and his wife Lis Cuesta.
The King and the President reviewed the troops during the official welcoming ceremony before bilateral agreements were signed by the dignitaries of both countries.
