CABALLETE DE CASA
Caballete de Casa, among the Escambray mountains, in the centre of the island, was the site chosen by the Comandante Guerrillero (Ernesto Che Guevara) for establishing his headquarters.
Ernesto Che Guevara’s Headquarters (Comandancia de Ernesto Che Guevara) during the struggle before 1959, located in Caballete de Casa, in the mountain massif of the Escambray, in the centre of the country, is currently being restored.
According to the National Agency of Information (Agencia de Información Nacional), the work being carried out reproduces exactly the legendary facilities used by the heroic warrior of Argentine-Cuban descent, as a training school for the Number Eight Column of the Rebel Army (Ejercito Rebelde), before 1959.
The ensemble, declared a National Monument 20 years ago, has a structure of rustic wooden props, covered by palm leaves.
Caballete de Casa, some 440 kilometres southeast of Havana, is the highest elevation of Fomento’s geography, in the province of Sancti Spíritus, 764 metres above sea level.
