Despite being known as a Cuban icon, Jose Marti was remembered for his visit to Caracas and honored in the capital city of Venezuela. Remembered as a heroic independence and freedom fighter, the ceremony was part of a widespread celebration and collection of activities within Venezuela.

Havana, Jan 21 (Prensa Latina) Representatives of Latin American countries remembered Cuba's national hero Jose Marti today, on the 132nd anniversary of his visit to Caracas, capital of Venezuela.

In remarks to Prensa Latina, Edgardo Ramirez, ambassador in Havana for that South American nation, talked of Marti's arrival in the birthplace of independence hero Simon Bolivar.

"He went to pay tribute -as a son- to the father, he went to forge his ideas for independence, freedom and, above all, the unity of Our America," Ramirez said
