  • A very impressive tour of the old prison on Isla also Fidel and his followers were detained in the. You can reach under the prison in the middle to the control tower. It is time, realises one time must have been as blatant. A very queasy feeling of tingling. It is absolutely a trip worth and can be reached by taxi in a few minutes from Gerona

  • I went with my spouse to the island in August this year. The same day that we decided to go to the prison model. It is a paragraph, impressive, space with lots of history. Much to my regret, prisons are destroyed ships. I think that for the piece of history that, should restore at least one ship and the dining room. Now the only area that functions as a Museum is the old hospital.

  • It is a purely historical place, where walking through each place makes you virtually live those moments in the Cuban revolutionaries spent time locked and many being beaten and killed. Part of the construction that is in poor condition but it is interesting to be there, to know what happened in each cell, where lived Fidel, where sang the first verses of the hymn July 26, etc. Beautiful place but that has been a bit abandoned.
