Did you know that: In Cuba we have as many as three statues of Liberty, found in the cities of Remedios, Puerto Padre and Gibara, rare as none in the Capital… Perhaps everyone does not know that in the Central Park, in the period from May 1902 to October 1903, an American statue dedicated to freedom opened by President Tom áss Estrada Palma was located as a symbol of the government of the rising Republic ..
