Cementerio Santa Ifigenia

Cementerio Santa Ifigenia Review

This cemetery is home to the majestic mausoleum of the great poet-patriot in the wars of independence, José Martí. The structure is true to Martí's wishes (expressed in one of his poems) that he be buried below the flag of Cuba and surrounded by roses. Marble steps lead to the tomb, above which is a domed tower. Other highlights include a memorial to Cuban soldiers who have fallen in battle and the tombs of Carlos Manuel de Céspedes and those who died in the Moncada Barracks attack. You need a guide (1 cuc) to enter.
