ANCIENT FENCE OF SAN BARTOLO (ANTIGUA VALLA DE SAN BARTOLO)
This is located in the town of Baire some 50 metres from the plaza. On February 24th of 1895 the “valleros” of the area concentrated themselves in this place from the early hours of the morning, and those who heard the speech of the Commander of the 1868 war Florencio Salcedo, who was judge of the fence that day, who said “...enough cockfighting, it time for men to fight and not animals, for Cuba’s independence”... went to the plaza, where Captain Saturnino Lora was waiting for them in order to restart the final struggle for Cuba’s independence.
It was declared a National Monument on December 25th of 1979.
