    Very beautiful cemetery, clear and bright, with beautiful tombs. Fidel Castro is in the foreground, with its large stone, can not photograph without paying, but everything is possible with a little trick. The changing of the guard, is interesting. This visit is worth the trip.

    You have creations that pay homage to Patriots as Francisco Sánchez Hechavarría, Joaquin Castillo Duany, Guillermón Moncada, Saturnino Lora and José Maceo, at Loma del Gato, where this last hero fell mortally wounded. At the request of teachers Santiago became, in addition, one of the first busts of José Martí, and which today is located in the old City Hall.
