We got pointed out on this place by a taxi driver who set the catholic cross sign on his head/chest, every time we passed by. By curiosity we asked about the speciality and feattures. We got a story about burrial customs in Cuba.

Take a stroll in the only garden cemetery in Cuba, founded in 1926. The main building is beautiful also the materials they were using for the monuments. National heroes are buried there along with common people.

Our guide, in perfect English, led us through Cuban history in her tour of this cemetary. Absolutely fascinating!

The heroes of the Sept 5th uprising are buried here, and have an impressive memorial, but the entrance is even more impressive. Huge columns you might see on a Greek revival stately home in the UK dominate. It was a 10 CUC return cycle taxi...More
