Recreation and knowledge come together in the journey that under the name Ruta Cultural (Cultural Route) began today its third experience in Baracoa, now interested in touring the museums of the territory.

The journey, promoted by the José Martí Cultural Society of the municipality and designed for the summer, began at the Eliseo Osorio Art Gallery, where it was discussed the life and work of the artist whose name is carried by this institution.

Alejandro Hartmann Matos, Historian of the First Village of Cuba, recalled the figures of Antonio Maceo and Ernesto Che Guevara, who left their mark on the region where, almost 508 years ago, the first city in the largest of the Antilles was founded.

The route included the passage through the exhibition hall of the building of the Association of Combatants of the Cuban Revolution, a place that treasures photos and documents linked to the history of the struggle for national sovereignty.

The next stop was at the Cueva del Paraíso Archaeological Museum, a facility surrounded by a natural environment that treasures engravings and petroglyphs from the ancient Baracoa region, as well as the reproduction of a Taino village.

The last place of the tour was the Fuerte Matachín Municipal Museum, site where participants presented criteria to improve the activity, which will be held every Friday of the holiday season of students.

Amado San Miguel, president of the José Martí Cultural Society, explained that the project to bring visitors and locals to the history of the town is dedicated to the onomastics of the Bronze Titan, Che and Eliseo Osorio.
