Beautiful cemetery, well maintained. Impressive is the changing of the guard.
Very historic place
Grab Fidel Castro
Stunningly beautiful cemetery! Monuments and crypts are just works of art! Cuba's greatest people are buried here! This cemetery should be visited by all those who are interested in history, art, sculpture, architecture. Only for the sake of this cemetery is worth coming to Santiago de Cuba!
Impressive to see, Fidel Castro is buried here without a mausoleum, while this is there for Marti. It is a search, but then you can find the stone of Fidel Castro with soldiers. Also The changing of the guard is very impressive and highly recommended to see.
