Che Guevara Mausoleum

The legendary revolutionary's remains, along with those of a few dozens of his fellow combatants, are buried at this location, having been transported here from Bolivia during the 1990's. Idolized as he is in Cuba, Che's Mausoleum holds great symbolic importance, and it is the centerpiece of most visits to Santa Clara.

Do & See

Life in Santa Clara is geographically centered around Parque Vidal, a pleasant park and square surrounded by museums, theaters and concert halls, all housed in some of the city's most beautiful buildings. Thematically, though, it revolves around Che Guevara and his role in the revolution and the battles fought here. Be sure to visit his mausoleum and the museum dedicated to his memory and struggles.
