The Puerto Rican independence fighter, Oscar López Rivera, will visit today places of historical and cultural interest in the province of Holguín, as part of his program of visit to Cuba.
The agenda of the Puerto Rican fighter, who remained imprisoned for almost 36 years in the United States, includes a tour of the historical complex of Birán, homeland of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro Ruz and the president of the Councils of State and Ministers, Army General Raúl Castro Ruz.
In that place, López Rivera will receive extensive details about the patrimonial values of that place, beside he will know through historians of this site, about Fidel's life in his childhood, where he learned to read when he was just four years old and everything related to the structure of the buildings that make up that community, declared a National Monument in February 2009.
Among the spaces to be visited by Oscar López, is the Square of the Revolution Calixto García Iñiguez, where he will be honored with the “Hacha” of Holguín, the highest distinction conferred by the Provincial Assembly of People's Power to personalities and groups in recognition of their important contributions in the different spheres of society.
