UNIVERSITY OF HAVANA
This centre of superior studies treasures an enormous amount of historical events and places, from its challenging 88 stone steps, to the statue of the Alma Máter and that of Ignacio Agramonte, the well preserved areas where important studies were carried out by famous students such as Cuba’s President Fidel Castro.
The Mella Memorial, which holds the ashes of the young student who founded the first Communist Party of Cuba back in 1925, is located in the surrounding area, as well as the place where the student leader José Antonio Echeverría was murdered in 1957.
In the University, the remains of the presbyter Félix Varela repose peacefully in the Cadena Plaza, and are also venerated. The University has had several names in over 250 years: Royal and Pontifical University of Saint Geronimo (Universidad Real y Pontificia de San Gerónimo), Royal and Literary University of Havana (Real y Literaria Universidad de La Habana) and later on it was known as the National University (Universidad Nacional).
