    Che Guevarra
    Santa Clara is a fun town to visit and is a little more than an hour to the north-east of Cienfuegos. The resting place of Che Guevara is the big draw card in Santa Clara and this attraction comes with a fascinating mausoleum and museum devoted to this revolutionary, along with monuments and statues galore. The Plaza de la Revolucion has a large statue of Che, while cantinas and cafés line part of Main Street.

    In the western center of the city, rises the Ernesto Che Guevara square, one of the sites of great historic value of the province. Inside it is the Mausoleum where rests the remains of the Legendary Heroic Guerrilla and his combat comrades, who had fallen in Bolivia.
