What a moving and fitting tribute to this Argentinian hero of Cuba! We were fortunate that our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Che and spoke great English so she was able to give us so much detail about his exploits. What a man!!! I knew very little about him when I arrived on my 9 day tour of Cuba but after hearing some of the stories and visiting places of importance, I found myself in tears in the mausoleum. A true hero!!

Tour guides in Cuba can be pretty poor, unfortunately, we had one such mute fellow and it spoilt our enjoyment of our visit to the mausoleum complex. Now I am back home and have researched the place I understand what the various sculptures and messages mean..and that there is a vast vault and eternal flame below! Our guide failed to tell us even this basic fact so most of the group just walked around the area above ground. Either ensure you get a good guide or check it out online before you visit so you get the most out of it. Definitely a must see though. You don't realise just how highly regarded in Cuba this Argentinian is.

Really imposing structure from the outside - in keeping with the high regard in which Cubans still hold Che Guevara. Inside it has all sorts of items owned by Che and his colleagues. There are descriptions of the exhibits in Spanish and English.

This is in a different part of town to the Tren Blindado, but taken together the two sites provide a fitting monument to the contribution of Che Guevara to the overthrow of Batista’s regime. The monument was originally put up in 1988; the marble reliefs tell the story of Che’s heroism and leadership, and then you can visit the mausoleum where his remains, returned from Bolivia in 1997 (coinciding with the 30th anniversary of his death), and those of six of his comrades are interred. It’s a bit of a “holy” shrine, not unlike visiting Lenin’s tomb in Moscow, except for the absence of queues – we were just about the only visitors that day. Inside the museum you’ll see precious artefacts relating to Che’s activities including his beret, binoculars and pistol holder. Cameras and bags are not permitted at this point, by the way. When you go back outside take a careful look at the statue of Che and you will see that his arm is in plaster – he had broken it during the action at Santa Clara. The marbles bas-reliefs tell the story of the battle, also describing Che’s march from the Sierra Maestra to Santa Clara, and then quote Guevara’s words in his farewell letter before he left for Bolivia. He praised Fidel for his leadership and expressed his pride in what he had contributed, explaining that he would now take his revolutionary fervour to “new battlefronts”. It was fitting that Che Guevara is one of only two foreigners to be proclaimed a Cuban citizen “by birth”.

Had booked a tour of Santa Clara with Dianaleis Maza Amores and to include the museum. Dianaleis was amazing. I’d highly recommend getting a guide as they just know stuff that brings it all together if you have limited time like we did. You can’t take bags in of any sort to the museum and there is a good ticket system for leaving them in a safe office. The museum has some amazing photographs and good explanations. The actual square is stunning. Cubans are so proud of their heritage and history you can feel it everywhere. Also on site are a small cafe, toilets and a couple of gift shops.
