Diaz-Canel Walks Santa Clara Along with its People

Havana, Jul 15 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, along with hundreds of people, walked through emblematic sites of the central city of Santa Clara, which is celebrating its 330th anniversary this Monday.

The President, surrounded by people, walked from the founding site of the city, the Church of Carmen, to the central Leoncio Vidal Park.

During the walk he shared with the people of Santa Clara and visited the pedestrian boulevard, the headquarters of the Union of Artists and Writers of Cuba (UNEAC), the Central Hotel and enjoyed the performance of troubadours, repentistas and other artists.

He also paid tribute to Marta Abreu, considered a benefactor of Santa Clara, before the statue that stands in the center of the city.

Diaz-Canel participates in the solemn session of the Municipal Assembly of People’s Power dedicated to the event.

Santa Clara is internationally known as the City of Che in honor of Commander Ernesto Guevara, who on the eve of 1959 led the struggle for the liberation of the city during the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.

The mortal remains of Commander Che Guevara, who occupied important posts in the revolutionary government, rest in a memorial in Santa Clara, along with those of those who were his comrades in Bolivia’s guerrilla feat.
