Museo de la Lucha contra Bandidos : Michelin's recommendations
Visible from afar, the proud yellow bell tower is a vestige of the former convent of San Francisco de Asís (18C), which has had a tumultuous history. Used as a henhouse, briefly a school, then a barracks, it today has a new vocation: to record the war waged by the current regime against bandits (counter-revolutionaries) who opposed Castro in the 1960s. They may be seen in the images displayed here, now the Museo de la Lucha contra Bandidos. Fine view from the top of the bell tower.
