This gunsmith’s shop, founded in 1934 under the name of Gunsmith Company of Cuba, was attacked on April 9, 1958 by members of the July 26 Movement led by Fidel Castro as part of the actions to overthrow Fulgencio Batista’s dictatorship.
The operation failed and four young men who participated in the attack were killed during it. After the Triumph of the Revolution in January of 1959, the place was declared Historical Site and National Monument in their memory.
Among the main collections there are those of long and short firearms; blades; ancient guns, in which a blunderbuss with percussion cap stands out; Spanish spark pistols that belonged to the King’s guard; French percussion pistols; a revolver with percussion cap; duel pistols; a pistol-cane; a dagger-pistol; and a signal pistol; among others. There is also a group of guns related to the revolutionary struggle exhibited.
Go to the Playas de Este. They are free to go to. Beaches located 18 kilometers east to the city.
Plaza de la Catedral. Free to enter.
The area where the Plaza de la Catedral is located used to be, according to 17th century records, a marshland renewed each year during the rainy season. At the place where the plaza was created, and due to its surface’s properties, the waters became stagnant, so that the place was known at the beginning as Plaza de la Ciénaga (Swamp Square). Nevertheless, around the middle of 16th century, the first requests by the neighbors to buy nearby lots were made, because during the dry season the stagnant waters disappeared and the living conditions improved.
