Matanzas

(Provinshovedstad)

 

Matanzas ( ca. 137' innbyggere) er hovedstaden i provinsen Matanzas, og ligger geografisk ca. ti-mil øst for Havanna og ca. fire-mil vest for for turistmeteropolen Varadero.

Matanzas by ligger i et delta med de tre store elvene Rio Yumuri, San Juan y Canimar og La Atenas de Cuba.  Matanzas har fått tilnavnet "Broenes by" på grunn av alle broene som krysser elvene.

Navnet Matanzas er "brutalt" og betyr massakre. Det stammer fra en tragedie i området (på 1500-tallet) hvor spanske conquistadorer stormet inn og massakrerte Cubas siste indianerstamme og dennes høvding Hatuey. Til minne om denne urbefolkningen og deres leder er det her i Matanzas reist et minnesmerke ( en statue) av Hatuey.

Museum to the Struggle of Ideas

It was inaugurated by Cuban President Fidel Castro in the Cardenas municipality, place of residence of the boy Elián González, who was subjected to a kidnap attempt by the far-right-wing Cuban mafia at Miami. The attempt was frustrated owing to the worldwide reaction in favor of the father's request for the child. From that moment on, the so-called "struggle of ideas" began to take place on the island and its first steps are displayed in the museum.

Address: Avenida José Martí and Maceo, Cárdenas.
