Pay Homage to Che Guevara
No matter how you feel about Argentinian revolutionary “El Che,” Santa Clara is the city to revisit his massive mark on history. In 1958, Che Guevara’s battle tactics in Santa Clara marked the end of the Batista regime; today, monuments, statues, and museums dedicated to the comandante dot the city. In addition to the big draws of Che Guevara Mausoleum, which houses his remains, and the Tren Blindado park exhibit, which details the battle of Santa Clara, keep an eye out for the smaller displays, too. The un-signposted “Che and Child” statue shown here stands four blocks from Tren Blindado. The right-hand image is another monument atop Loma del Capiro (Capiro’s Hill).
