This cemetary is the resting place of Jose Marti, the founder of Cuba. But the most interesting aspect of the cemetary is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the changing of the guard ceremony. The guards are meticulous in their uniforms and in their march drill. And they take this quite seriously. We saw a few young teenagers who were escorted away when they became a bit raucus and noisy. They were chastised and scolded, as they should have been.
Along with the Castle del Morro, this is a must see in Santiago.
