Photographer's Note

This is the monument for the attack on a train, made in Santa Clara, said to have been one of the most important attacks in the Cuban Revolution, as it caused big material losses to the Regime's Army.

It's like everywhere else in Cuba, that all people involved in the attack are declared heroes, and every little detail of the Revolution needs its monument.

The fact that the Ché-Mausoleum is in Santa Clara, is because of the attack on the train, which was led by Ché Guevara. Although most Cuban people and other historicans assume it's more because it formerly was a touristically underdevelopped part of the Island, and thus they had to get tourists to be willing to get there, too, as there would have been more interesting and more historically relevant places for the Mausoleum.
