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.
