The mausoleo complex is well worth visiting when you are in Santa Clara. The museum gives you a good background to Che and the events of December 1958.

What a tribute to a person, a Marxist revolutionary, born 1928 in Argentina, killed 1967 in Bolivia, and laid to rest in Santa Clara, Cuba, in 1997. He led an adventurous life through South America. In Cuba he became an important communist figure in the late 1950s, and was instrumental in the last battle of the Cuban Revolution in Santa... More

We took a day trip to Santa Clara from Trinidad via private car. We saw the mausoleum and box car. It was a worthwhile trip to take. We only spent about 2 hours at the two sites though. In hindsight, I wonder if I could have hired a private car to take us from Trinidad to Havana with a stop... More

Visiting the mausoleum you cannot help but share the feelings of respect and adoration still felt for Che Guevara today. The museum gives a fascinating insight into the life of Che Guevara and the impact of his beliefs and actions.

Don't attempt to go on a Monday like my friend and I did... It won't be open! As with everything in Cuba, they close on Mondays. It's so easy to lose track of the days while travelling and that's exactly what happened to us! Also, Santa Clara is not worth visiting for anything else. There is very little to do... More
