Fodor's Review

Fidel Castro was born at Finca Manacas in the town of Biran, 60 km (37 mi) southeast of Holguín. Although the two-story house isn't open to visitors, you can get a special pass (free) to enter the premises from the Communist Party headquarters in Holguín. Castro's father leased land here from the United Fruit Company and raised sugarcane. The property eventually encompassed 26,000 acres and included a cattle farm, a repair shop, a store, and other facilities.
