The place combines the small and intimate mauseleo containing the mortal remains of Che and above a typically huge statue and vast open space. Whatever your political viewpoint, this place should be at the top of the list for anyone even remotely interested in the history of Cuba. A small museum (mostly Spanish only) helps explain a little more about... More

One of the highlights of our stay in Santa Clara was spending the morning at the Che Guevara plaza. We were able to enjoy the May 1st celebrations and the youthful excitement.

This site was the first one visited as part of our 3 cities tour from Varadero. Our guide, Alexandro provided a lot of interesting information about how Ernesto - Che Guevara liberated the people from the oppression of the then ruling government. We stopped in front of the monument where we were allowed to take several photos. We were informed... More

We visited the Mausoleo on the way to Trinidad. It´s an important place to visit but...a bit disappointing. Big monument in the middle of nothing. It does explain Che´s journey in Cuba very well but watch out, only in Spanish.

I always wanted to visit Cuba for many reasons, the first being to pay my respects to the one, true hero of humanity, the revolutionary CHE! Unfortunatly, on my first trip three years ago, the mausoleo was undergoing repairs, so I had to come back to Cuba, just for that. Of course, I did! The feelings when you enter the... More

This was my first visit to Santa Clara (other than the airport) The Mausoleum of Che is a huge monument, and well worth the visit.

The final resting place of the main hero of the Cuban revolution! His remnants brought back from Bolivia, buried with his comrades of arms in the revolution. More tasteful than other mausoleums I have visited.

The museum has an excellent presentation of the history of Che Guevara. The museum and mausoleum does great justice to the man and the legend. It is a bit of an effort to get here but it is worth the travel. After visiting here you realize that the revolution would not have been won without him.

If in Santa Clara, visiting the Che monument and Mausoleum is a must do. It also gives an idea on how important Che was for the Cuban revolution and what kind of effort they went through to make this mausoleum possible.

The Cuban people have such a rich history and this stop on our way back to Varadero was well worth the sidetrip. The story and artifacts there are fascinating and there was so much I didn't realize about El Che. Stop here when you can.
