LOS PORTALES CAVE (CUEVA DE LOS PORTALES)
Commander Ernesto Che Guevara established his operations centre here, during the October Crisis or Caribbean Crisis of October 1962. The cave was declared a National Monument and is located in the area of San Andrés, between the Sierras del Rosario and the Sierra de Los Órganos, in the province of Pinar del Río.
In addition to its historical importance, the place has become a tourist attraction from a natural point of view. A Spanish man, who named it after himself, discovered the cave in 1800. It is a permanent tourist attraction, especially among those interested in learning about the life and works of Che Guevara, that great man who in his farewell letter told his children with particular sensitivity and symbolism: your father has been a man who acts as he thinks fit and has been loyal to his convictions.
