- The last trip of Fidel Castro is over. A military convoy brought the urn containing the ashes of the deceased leader of the revolution Saturday the city of Santiago de Cuba inside, watched beaten by tens of thousands of people were lined up along the streets. Castro's final resting place is considered the birthplace of the communist revolution.
With a small group of comrades fell 'El Commandante' a barracks in 1953 to. That first battle ended in failure, but six years later crowed Castro from the balcony of the town hall in the same Santiago victory. He then ruled the island for nearly half a century. His brother Raul took over in 2006, his tasks.
Fidel Castro's urn was driven by Cuba in recent days and is buried Sunday at Santa Ifigenia cemetery, 2.7 kilometers from the barracks where he started his revolution.
