  • 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.

  • In the prison model you feel as if you were living in the history that you are contant, by being immersed in the old building has and so selective words of people telling their story.

  • It is a prison complex, which consists of multiple buildings inhabited by the prisoners and their guards. It is not in very good condition and is almost impossible to enter them. NOT because he can not, but because it is a place full of mosquitoes, and tourists can attest to their bites. My advice is to not go during the mosquito, and if so only look from the outside.
