Loma del Capiro

Santa Clara

Two blocks east of the Estatua Che y niño, a road to the right leads to Santa Clara's best lookout, the distinctive Loma del Capiro. The crest is marked by two flags and a series of stakes supporting the metallic but recognizable face of, you've guessed it, Che Guevara.

The hill was a crucial vantage point for his forces during the 1958 liberation of Santa Clara.
