Santa Clara, Cuba

A buzzing provincial town, with a pleasant “Parque Central”, Santa Clara is most famous for its connection with Che Guevara, whose attack in December 1958 on a Batista troop train helped to persuade the former dictator that his days were numbered.

Even if you are not particular interested in Cuba’s historical events, the provincial capital that benefits from having a large student population, is well worth a visit. Parque Vidal, is not only the geographical heart of Santa Clara, it is also its social centre. One of Cuba’s few remaining theaters of the Colonial era, Teatro de Caridad, is a great example of the elaborate architecture from the Colonial period.

A very interesting place is the place of the last battle of the Cuban revolution. The capture of the train was the decisive act in the triumph of the revolution and it is now a major tourist attraction. Batista was on the point of sending an armored train with weapons and soldiers to Santiago de Cuba to counter attack revolutionaries. Che Guevara use sn american bulldogger to stop the train, the solders on the train are quikly surrounded and the fight had been soon over.Now there is a museum inside the train.

The Memorial - Beautifully and well presented. Simple and solemn. An excellent way to say thank you. If you walk over to the parade field right in front and behind it, youll find some children that will tell you the whole story, where did Ernesto came from, where the battle took place, and they will tell it with a smile in their faces as they mimic their grandfathers who were in the battle (please bring school supplies and pass them down over here) Reads Ernesto's alleged letter of farewell to the Cuban people and try to hold a tear from running down your cheek. Same letter that impeded him from coming back...
