  • This is a place in Havana as emblematic as the Plaza de San Francisco de Asís, old town square or the Boardwalk. A few months ago is plaza was surrounded by sellers of antique and other books but no longer. From my point of view gave him plenty of life to the square but now is empty and it is magic. With only sit to contemplate a beautiful traditional gardening as their seats and your around old Havana seem to be at another time if you close your eyes. If you come from travel by any Bishop Avenue, it will be ideal to rest.

  • Deserved recognition to the Cuban independence, in the center of the plaza de Armas. It rose in arms against the Spanish Government on October 10, 1868, granting freedom to slaves and inviting them to join the anti-colonial struggle. On 10 October, in its sugar mill La Demajagua, rose in arms, and the cry of Viva Cuba Libre!, called Grito de Yara, proclaimed the independence of Cuba and gave freedom to their slaves. It leads the insurrection under the command of 147 men and gradually grows the number of supporters that follow, reaching it about 17,000 men. On October 20 it takes Bayamo and a Government created to help the poor. Carlos Manuel Céspedes is born on that day, and under a canopy to the parish church, where is assigned the title of Captain General of the Cuba Libre and directs an excited speech, declaring the freedom of all the insurgent slaves. Ousted as President in 1873 settled in San Lorenzo, the Sierra Maestra where, in 1874, falls into unequal battle against Spanish troops. I have attached a photo, did you useful?
