Museo Municipal de Guanabacoa

Museum in Regla & Guanabacoa

Guanabacoa's main museum, like Regla's, is an important shrine to Santería, though you'll need to see past the rundown facilities and impassive 'guides' to appreciate it. The collection is small but concise; rooms are dedicated to the various Santería deities with a particular focus on the orisha Elegguá. Equally fascinating are rare artifacts from the Palo Monte and Abakuá religions.

The museum has another arm further west along Calle Martí in the Museo de Mártires, which displays historical material relevant to the revolution and its local 'martyrs.'
