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.

On our trip to Havana we stopped of at the che gavara monument, it seems impossible not to get goose bumps when you are at the shrine of such a place in Cuban history. The soldiers and leaders of such a powerful people make you think of all the possibilities that still move these people.

Very interesting place. Very well done and very moving. Was a good place to reflect on life and how different life is for Cubans.

This museum comprised the monuments plus a collection of memorabilia from the Che era. It is well laid out however there is little information linking the artefacts to their role in history.

Seeing this made me develop a little crush on the man. Really wanted to learn more about him. The depth of Cuban love for him can really be felt at this place. It's almost religious.

This is the city I am from and I absolutely love coming to see this monument! You must come and visit the museum as well. Since I was little we always visited here and it's pretty nice. You can bring a picnic and have fun with your family!

I have visited the Che Guevara Mausoleum twice, and found it to be very interesting! It's a very touching visit, and it's great to know more about such an important person in Cuban history. It's a must-visit when in the Santa Clara area.

I didn't know too much about the history of Cuba, just the generic information that we all know so this was good to see and read because he is such a big part of the Cuban history

This site is well worth a visit, the Che statue is quite impressive as is the mausoleum and museum. Nobody bothers you here as there is an army presence which deters the usual hawkers etc.
