  • This place is definitely worth a visit, has a special atmosphere. It is a place where a lot of the population go to bow to the monument of Cuba Fidel Castro. Here you can see the changing of the guard at the monument. It is a place guarded by soldiers. The whole graveyard is beautiful, all the monuments and tombs are of white marble.
