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.

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.
