Lonely Planet review
The town's main sight is the renovated museum two blocks west of Parque Martí. Founded in 1964, it tracks the development of the neighborhood throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and is famous for its rooms on Afro-Cuban culture, slavery and the Santería religion, with a particular focus on the orisha Elegguá.
The museum has another arm further west along Calle Martí in the Museo de Mártires , which displays material relevant to the Cuban Revolution.
