Anthem Square Bayamo

Anthem Square Bayamo Cuba
Anthem square in Bayamo covers an area of about 4 332 square meters and owes its name to the fact that on these cobblestones, Carlos Manuel de Céspedes and his combatants sang our national anthem for the first time on October 20th 1868 when taking the City of Bayamo. Historically linked to the Church, this public area is one of the most important places in the region, since it was last changed to this definitive settlement, surrounded by one-story buildings dating XIX Century and built over the ashes of those existing before January 12th 1869 when the rebels burnt the City to the ground to impede it being taken by the Spanish.
