I left for Cuba expecting to see a myriad of references to El Comandante all throughout the country. Instead, I found myself in the land of Che Guevara. The handsome Argentine, a symbol of revolutionary patriotism has long been Cuba's martyr. The Che Guevara Mausoleum in Santa Clara is a must see: an impressive structure replicating real-life letters written by El Che and documents honoring him. However, for or a truly spiritual experience, visit his Memorial behind the actual monument (pictures not allowed inside, or anything else for that matter). As soon as you step inside, you'll feel transported into a Japanese temple of sorts, exuding zen, humbleness and simplicity. You'll only see his face, engraved in stone, along with his other fallen comrades, all carrying a simple flower next to it. Incredibly touching, exquisite design.

The Che Guevara Mausoleum, in honor of my compatriot symbol of the Cuban revolution, is a beautiful structure with a statue and the inscription "classic until the victory always". Inside the mausoleum you can not take pictures, but it is instructive and ideal for anyone who really likes everything about Cuban history.

Playa de Gandia

Casi en la afueras de la ciudad está la enorme Plaza Che Guevara, donde resalta la estatua de bronce del líder cubano. La estatua se construyó para celebrar el 20 aniversario del asesinato del Che y por detrás se puede visitar el mausoleo con nichos de piedra dedicados a los guerrilleros que murieron en la revolución. Un lugar para sentir la importancia del Che en el pueblo cubano. Se puede llegar andando desde el centro o alquilando un coche de caballos.
