    outside, in a clearing many guys playing base ball, are occasionally, it seems real match: inside it's all gloomy and decadence, what used to be the best and most secure prison on the island. now the buildings show the small cells, the central tower from which the guards could keep everything under control, there is also the room where he was locked up alone Fidel Ruiz, Commander ... worth stepping inside

    Not where I wanted to go from being introduced on TV, and he could finally visit. Finding the place because there was little advance information in Japan, began. Use the plane nearest nuebohelona airport is best, but access to the island besides the plane seems to be ship heading from Havana. One day one or two flies including the sudden cancellation. The airfare was about 8000 Yen round trip. Arranged from us. Go by taxi from arriving at the airport. It was 15 CUC. Ask a taxi driver after a two-hour pick-up from toured inside. Basically, feel free to visit. When I was in my other tourists who think deeply touched by the one who could, you can spot. Can be allowed in a 5 round buildings in all. Aging, steps up and rises to the upper floors. Note 10-self responsibility. There the Museum is equipped to pay. Recommended tour of the city you can in a couple of hours to see enough planes have in the morning and evening hours. This is the place for those who are interested can come from Havana in about 30 minutes, so take a look at, I would recommend.
