OFFICIAL VOICE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF CUBA CENTRAL COMMITTEE

Santiago de Cuba’s Santa Ifigenia cemetery now offers a central site to pay tribute to heroes of our independence struggles: the Father of the Homeland, Carlos Manuel de Céspedes; the Mother of all Cubans, Mariana Grajales; National Hero José Martí; and the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro.

The remains of Céspedes and Mariana were transferred from their previous plot in the cemetery, to be placed alongside those of José Martí and Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro.

In tribute to Mariana, a bronze sculpture of this Cuban heroine by Alberto Lescay was unveiled.
