Homes for rent in Cuba: Historical center of Villa Clara
A few kilometers from the province of Sancti Spirits, in the central part of the country, is the Cuban province of Villa Clara. Founded in the 16th century, a little after Trinidad with the name of Villa Santa Clara, the historic center of the province is one of the oldest in the country and for many years has connected the different roads and railroads, becoming an important place for trade in Cuba. Several of our best homes for rent in Cuba are in this province.
Traditionally, the city developed as fundamental economic activities the production of coffee, fishing and the sugar industry. However, for several years the province has developed tourism notably. Unlike all the North of the city, the territory corresponding to the provincial Capital does not have large hotel facilities for visitors, so it has been taken as an alternative the rent of private houses so that the people who they travel to Santa Clara can be greeted and welcomed with hospitality and professionalism.
In addition to the system of keys with its beautiful pristine beaches of fine sand in which are practiced frequently activities of diving, sport fishing and marine photography, stand out like tourist attractions the zone corresponding to the lake of Hanabanilla and the Mount of Escambray. Close to the large natural park of collating stops, these landscapes are characterized by crystalline rivers and lush vegetation. The niche camp houses hundreds of visitors from all over the world every year, whether in private homes or in their small rural hotel located at the behest of Lake Hanabanilla.
Apart of its beautiful scenery, the area includes the history of the Cuban Revolution, since the mountains of the countryside were the terrain chosen by the Argentine guerrilla Ernesto Guevara to establish his base camp. The site is currently preserved and is known as the command of Che in the area and is accessed by climbing to the top of the hill. Close to the area we have amazing homes for rent in Cuba.
The people most interested in history visit the square of the revolution of Santa Clara, which contains a enormous sculpture of Argentine Internationalist hero Ernesto Guevara, under which is located a mausoleum where rest the remains of the guerrilla. Along with the remains of the well-known political leader and Cuban-Argentinian communist ruler are those of 29 companions who died next to him in 1967 during the armed uprising in Bolivia. The bronze statue measures 22 feet and was designed to pay tribute to the notable leader. The area is known as the sculptural complex Ernesto Guevara and contains a flame that remains constantly lit, known as “The Eternal Flame”, which was ignited by Cuban President Fidel Castro Ruz on October 17, 1997, at which time they performed the military honors that gave way to the tomb of the exhumed remains of Che. The city of Santa Clara was chosen as a place for the construction of the monument in memory of the takeover of the city, led by the hero in 1968, which constituted the decisive confrontation for the triumph of the Cuban revolution. Near the place, remain the remains of an armored train that Che himself derailed to prevent supplies of weapons arrived to enemy troops.
