Casa Museo Celia Sánchez Manduley

Museum in Marea del Portillo

Inspired by Fidel's revolutionary call, the town's inhabitants were quick to provide aid to the disparate rebel army after the Granma yacht landed nearby in 1956, and Castro muse Celia Sánchez briefly based herself here. This tiny museum has been named in her honor – though it functions mainly as a local history museum. It was closed for refurbishment at the time of research.
