Visit the site of the beginning of Cuba’s most important historical movement when you head to Moncada Barracks. The barracks was the site of Fidel Castro’s July 26th assault, which he later named his revolution. The attack led to Castro’s imprisonment. Having been converted to a school after the revolution, visitors must now visit around the schedule of classes. Take a guided tour of the barracks to learn about the attack before heading to the small museum. The artifacts in the museum are labelled with Spanish labels and descriptors.

  • It is a former barracks converted to school or you began the first revolutionary movements. His story is interesting to know, but what about the building, it remains on a corner of the façade as a few bullet holes.
