Founded in 1689 when a group from Remedios moved away from the coast to escape from pirate raids, Santa Clara became famous in 1958 when it was the setting of the battle, led by Che Guevara, that marked the end of Batista’s dictatorship. Santa Clara is now known as “the city of the heroic guerrilla”.
