The "White house" is where Castro and comrades launched their failed attack on the Moncada barracks in 1953 and where some of the survivors returned (and were captured). The most astonishing thing is how many people were crammed in to this small farmhouse - 129...More

A visit here will add to what you learn at Cuartel Moncada. Fairly brief tour but well worth the short drive out of the city. The guides were very informative.

This farmhouse tells the story of one of the earliest of Castro's adventures - and the worst failure, I think. There is a huge amount of information and there are guides all around. Ours said she could not speak English, but if we translated wrongly,...More

Is a place to stop by. Nothing mayor but nice and historical. The best of everything was the restaurant on front. A private restaurant with a very Cuban style. We feel like really luckies cause Rosi the owner just open for us.
