CATíS HILL (LOMA DEL GATO)
Located in the eastern municipality of Songo La Maya, the area won its place in Cubaís history when on July 5th of 1896, the fatal combat where the legendary eastern lion (Leůn de Oriente), Josť Maceo Grajales, brother of Lieutenant General Antonio Maceo was mortally wounded.
Josť, son of a legendary lineage of titans, gave his last breath to his homeland, after fighting endlessly and bravely against the Spanish colonialism during the XIX century.
This important site in the eastern mountains was the scene of his last battle, where his spirit lives on, that is why it was declared a National Monument to honour the Eastern Lion (Leůn de Oriente).
