MONUMENTAL COMPLEX OF ANTONIO MACEO (SAN PEDRO)
Located in an attractive area of the Bauta municipality, it is one of the most venerated spots in the province of La Habana, adjacent to the capital.
This is where Lieutenant General of the Liberating Army (Ejército Libertador) Antonio Maceo and his assistant, Captain Panchito Gómez Toro, fell in combat; a painful event that happened on December 7th of 1896.
The complex encompasses an area of five thousand square miles and both entrances to the monument are marked by transparent pierced figures or silhouettes, five meters high and 3,75 meters wide.
Due to its historical significance, the monumental complex of San Pedro was designated as a National Monument in 1991.
