  • A very interesting venue with an impressive history. The Guide has extensive knowledge and there is a very good deal. Remains well preserved the part where is the Museum, the circular prison buildings are damaged but you can clearly see its original function. In addition to the history of Fidel Castro and the other attackers to Moncada barracks, there is information about other famous prisoners and the Japanese who were detained there during the second world war. In this place you can understand the intensity of the struggle of the Cuban revolutionaries and the extraordinary leadership and vision of Fidel.
