A well laid out internal display about Che Guevara with lots of information about his life and part he played in the revolution. Impressive statue and monuments in his honour. DO NOT cross the line in the hall with the eternal flame, saw and heard someone get a roasting for not observing rules.

The cult of Che Guevara, which is visible throughout Cuba, is nowhere more evident than at this mausoleum and attached museum. It is located in Santa Clara, where he first made a favorable impression for his medical and dental care of the local people. We found that people were more respectful and reverent when entering his understated but moving mausoleum... More

After reading several of Che Guevara's books and understanding the revolutionary history of Cuba seeing this monument to Che was amazing. It stands on top of the cemetery where Che and his command are buried. Also, there is a museum displaying artifacts from their revolutionary expidition.

The main attraction when visiting Santa Clara. A nice 15 min walk from the centre of town, or you can jump on a horse drawn carriage.

Che Guevara and his compadres remains are here. Its a rather solemn place and a must see when in Santa Clara.Its connected to the museum which contains many pictures and items of Che's. You have to check your bags first at a connecting building and there are gift shops on the grounds. We were very touched by the whole experience.

You may or not like Che Guevara, but the place is impressive and it really deserves a visit. Don't forget to check the rear part, with the tombs, apart from the main square with the big statue

This was an easy walk from the center of town. It is a pretty place with a lot of history. Che is buried here with all of his troops except for one who they never found. It was underground and was modest. You must go if in Santa Clara.

How can you drive through Santa Clara and not pay homage to Che ?! It is an impressive mausoleum and standing before his resting place you cannot help some reflection and emotion. Hasta la victoria siempre.

It's safe to say that 'Che Guevara' is one of the most renowned figures in history who's face appears on billboards and t-shirts all over the world including in remote areas of Africa. The Mausoleum contains the remains of Che and 6 of the 29 soldiers that fought with him in Bolivia, 1967. They were captured and executed while trying... More

If you travel Cuba, you soon find out every thing ends up in revolution and unavoidable Che Guevara. Interesting to see how many pictures are taken of Che. The inner mausoleum is a shrine - be silent and respectful. Che is buried with some of his fighters there among one of his wife's. The outer monument is a great spacey... More
