Che Guevara Memorial in Santa Clara

by admin on April 13, 2015

Our city was the site of a decisive battle where Ché’s forces captured an armored train, along with three hundred soldiers, their ammunition and heavy weaponry.  It’s now home to a large memorial to the revolution, along with a museum detailing the life of Che Guevara. The centerpiece of the memorial is a huge statue of the man himself looking towards the mountains where his 8th column fought.

The museum beneath the memorial depicts Che as an educated statesman. After the revolution he traveled to recently liberated countries to learn how they rebuilt their economies.
