We visited the museum of the Struggle Against Bandits, which is located close to Plaza Mayor.
We made a guided tour in this interesting museum in an old couvent; in the exhibition, there are simply and clear displays regarding Cuba history. We climbep to the top of the tower, allowing us to have wonderful panoramic viewpoints on Trinidad and on the surroundings!

A wonderful old building that was once convent of San Francisco de Asis - the view from the top of the bell tower is stunning looking across to both the sea and the mountains. The main reason though for coming is another part of Cuba's history with the stories and photos of the counter-revolutionary battles in the 1960's.

A part of Cuban history that I had little knowledge of and so this was an eye opener. Made more real by the newspaper footage and face shots of the fallen. Not expecting it, the views from above are truly awesome with a lot more peace than elsewhere.

The museum is located in the old convent and we visited it just for the views from the roof and church tower. It was well worth 1 CUC entry fee, the views of Trinidad and the surrounding countryside were amazing.
We had a quick glimpse of the exposition and we found the Communist propaganda there atrocious, actually to the level of being funny. I made some pictures of captions just to have examples of Orwellian propaganda language. Comparable to some museums we remembered from our childhood in Communist Poland. If you are hardcore revolution fan, there are some reliquiae inside like Che Guevara's hammock and Camilo Cienfuegos' shirt. Wouldn't vouch for their authenticity but hey, reliquiae is about belief rather than authenticity!

In Cuba there are countless opportunities to sample issues about the Revolution. The difference here is that there is emphasis on the struggle to contain the counter-revolutionary elements of the 1960s. The building is the former St Francis of Assisi Convent. This means that after absorbing the museum exhibits there is the bell tower to climb which gives wonderful views over the town both towards the sea and inland. A visit here is highly recommended.

In one of the most recognizable buildings in Trinidad, the view from the top in the bell tower was stunning! Has rooms with displays of photos, weapons, maps and other objects.

A museum not to the revolution, but to those who opposed the revolution, at least I think. The displays were moderately interesting, but as all the accompanying explanations were in Spanish, unless you were able to read and understand these, a lot of the significance was lost.

Museum provides many historical facts, mainly about rebels fighting against the Cuban government. Exhibition has a lot of pictures of Fidel Castro even from his early years.
Unfortunately the exhibition is only in Spanish language.

Would have loved it if the exhibitions were available in English. But the actual newspaper footage and photos gave a personal touch

I wandered in here one sleepy afternoon and was most interested to find exhibitions pertaining to the counter revolutionaries of Cuba. Remarkably similar to other museums about revolutionaries, there are items of transport - confiscated boats and trucks etc, martyr walls, personal artifacts and lots of news items and articles contemporaneous with events and people. It's housed in an old convent still complete with bell tower and glorious views to the hills over red tiled roofs. It's a lovely building - echoing tiled floors, colonnades and elegant planted courtyards.
However, all the signs and explanations etc are in Spanish. So if you're not a reader of Spanish you may like to find one to guide you.
