This was an intimate memorial to Che and his comrades who were part of the resistance. There is also an interesting and small museum attached with a variety of Che's personal belongings and diary extracts which are worth seeing. Could visit and see within two hours.

Next to the statue (which is quite impressive by itself) also visit the mausoleo beneath. It's quiet and serene and really makes you realise what Che did for his country.

The exterior is much better than the interior (museum). Epic statue making Che seem god-like, even though he was far from it. Great Soviet-style edifice, filled with irony. Worth the visit.

This has some historical items, weapons, etc. But we expected much more considering the impact he had on Cuba.

This turned out to be quite a memorial to Che. It is one of the most important monuments in Cub. There were several soldiers guarding the expansive property. We could only take photos on the outside. This is one of the main attractions in Santa Clara.

We really enjoyed our trip to the Mausoleum, it was very busy but really interesting - you can't quite believe its a mausoleum as it feels a bit fake but the history was great. If you take your camera you will not be allowed inside so make sure you have someone who can hold it for you.

This impressive monument honors Che, the professional revolutionary. A small interior museum exhibits items, photos, and tells the story of his life (and death).

My wife and I are amazed by the impact Eduardo Che Guevara had on Cuba despite only being there for a few years. After he became bored with being in government, Che left to become involved in more revolutions in other countries. He was finally captured in Bolivia and murdered by the CIA in 1967. His remains were repatriated to... More

As I was to small to understand when this all happened, I read a lot about Cuba before I went to visit. It is a very interesting site. If you are interested in history.
