Gibara, Cuba: Camilo Cienfuegos was one of the most popular commandantes of the Cuban revolution, more popular with the people than Fidel because of his rugged handsome appearance. On 28 October, 1959 just 10 months after the revolutionary forces seized control of the country, Camilo's Cessna returning to Havana from Camaguey disappeared. No traces have ever been found. Every year on 28 October all the children throw flowers into the sea in honor of Camilo. 40 years ago, the residents of Gibara, a fishing town on the north east coast, donated everything they had that was made of bronze to construct this 3 meter tall statue of Camilo.
