Solemn place located at the entrance of the so-called City of Che. The memorial is the burial place of the heroic guerrilla leader and most of his comrades killed in the Bolivian jungles during the second half of the 1960’s. The monumental complex was the idea of Jose Delarra and has become a place of obliged visit for tourists coming to the city.

Most of displays are translated but you cant get the real feel for what it means. Free Be prepared to hand over your bags, camera's etc before entering the museum itself - no photography allowed in museum or... More
We stopped by this site when driving into Santa Clara. So important to the history of Cuba. It's majestetic, and the small museum gives you a peek into how the days were during the revolution.
