Very impressive all these people giving their lives for their idealism. The last resting place of Che. You have 2 go here if you are interested in the history of Cuba

Had read so much in my youth but nothing compares to a visit like this and being so close to the battles and experiences - a visit all people should take.

Just outside Santa Clara is the usual vast wind-swept empty space with a large statue of Che and various inspirational (depending on your politics) messages. Underneath is a modest museum/mausoleum (leave your bags and cameras at left luggage) which includes various photos, uniforms, guns etc, and surprisingly rugby magazines edited by Che, and the prize exhibit - a peach stone...

No cameras allowed, no touching exhibit cases, no talking at the mausoleum. I was treated like a child. I'm respectful enough not to speak by a tomb, I don't need to be told. It's a quick stop, in and out in 30 minutes, so if you're in the area go see it. I wouldn't be making plans for a specific... More

It was a very impressive memorial. Much nicer and moving than I had expected when arriving. I wasn't too happy that I couldn't take my camera inside but it was understandable. Everything inside was detailed into Che's life. I wish there was more stuff to do around the site. Either way, I studied Che and read a lot of books... More

Incredible place and magnificent Mausoleum of Che. There is a grave of Guevara's co soldiers. The statue of Che is enormus. There is the song "Hasta Siempre" in my mind, the moment I was there.

A huge Che's statue is kind of impressive. Furthermore, his last words written on stone are something for his fans. And the grave - a bit chill but with this historic feeling in the air.

This was a very impressive memorial to Che and those comrades killed with him in Bolivia. The Cubans take this site extremely seriously and absolutely no cameras are allowed inside the actual Mausoleum. Witihn the mausoleum the ashes of Che and each of his comrades are contained within niches in the rock wall. A very simple idea, but done with... More

A very moving, atmospheric, evocative experience. The tomb and museum are a fitting tribute to the hero of heroes, regardless of your political persuasion in my opinion. We were lucky in that, unlike what the guidebooks say, we were the only visitors, post lunch on a Sunday. The staff are lovely and, despite my lack of Spanish and their minimal... More
