  • The city of Santa Clara is also important as the town of Che Guevera's mausoleum, which is undoubtedly the main character of the Revolution, as well as in terms of the history of the Cuban Revolution. Che is not surprising that his short life is a myth/myth, that he has packed so many thoughts and actions that will be exemplary to the world. However, this monumental tomb for Che is undoubtedly meaningful for the people of Cuba and for the peoples of the world to be commemorating after the life of a person who has become a rightful cult. The statue of the monument was depiced on a high pedestal in Che's guerrilla clothing and with a gun. It can be argued that it is quite effective. The museum section of the monument is extremely modest and homely. The museum is a very small hall, actually. Comandante's childhood and youth years, medical education, pre-Cuban revolution guerrilla, post-industrial minister and head of the central bank, etc., photographs, clothes, documents and of course their weapons. The pictures of the revolutionary staff with the fingers of one hand and the mausoleum next to the Heman, a red clove and torch. A salute to Che on behalf of myself and all the revolutionaries.

  • Intimate look by way of photos of the life of Che Guevara. Mausoleum is well done and a large monument to the great man outside the front. A must look!
  • The museum and the memorial are both around the back of the statue - just go down from the statue, turn right, and go all the way around the statue to the middle, it is all under the statue. To get there from the town is pretty easy, it is a 20 minute walk through normal Cuban suburbs
