Eastern Cuba Sights

La Demajagua

Published 08/26/2015

Fodor's Review

In the sugar country outside Manzanillo this farm is where poet, patriot, and cane farmer Carlos Manuel de Céspedes freed his slaves and called for rebellion against Spain. There's a large monument at the entrance to the estate, and you can see the bell used by Céspedes to summon his slaves to freedom. The Museo Histórico La Demajagua, in Céspedes's former home, displays documents, photos, and other artifacts.
