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.

We visited this highly moving tribute to the great Che Guervara during our recent tour of Cuba. This is areal landmark in the city where Che's defeat of Batista's army in 1958 marked the beginning of the end for Batista's dictatorship. This great memorial was built to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the battle of Santa Clara and now also... More

Visit near the end of the day about fourish and catch the sunsetting on this amazing piece of architecture. The artifacts inside are comparatively few but incredibly interesting. The crypt is very atmospheric and poignant. Well worth the visit irrespective of your take on che and Cuban politics.

While in Santa Clara I think this is a must go. Next to Museum Che Guevara, you will spend just a couple of minutes there and pay your tribute to Che. GO!

You have to visit just because it is Che. Its not wildly spectacular and the museam is not that great but it is what it represents that counts. I wouldn't drive all the way to Santa Clara to see it though !
