30 Che Guevara Sculpture at Revolution Square in Havana, Cuba

Che Guevara was an Argentine rebel who was Fidel Castro’s righthand man during the Cuban Revolution. After their victory in 1959, Guevara had key roles during the Bay of Pigs Invasion in 1961 and the Cuban Missile Crisis the following year. In 1967, while Che Guevara was leading gorilla forces called the National Liberation Army of Bolivia, his location was betrayed by an informant. He was surrounded by Bolivian troops, wounded, taken prisoner and executed shortly afterwards. This five-story, steel outline of Che Guevara is on the side of the Minister of the Interior building facing Revolution Square. Inscribed below are the words “Hasta la Victoria Siempre.” The translation is, “Until the Everlasting Victory Always.”
