Fidel has been in Camagüey since that memorable January 4, 1959, when he spoke to the people for the first time in the Plaza de la Libertad.
Then he returned again and again, to meet, in more than 60 visits, with workers, farmers, scientists, students, health professionals and with the people.
In Camagüey, he recognized the impulse of educational works and inaugurated, among other works, the Pre-University Vocational Institute of Exact Sciences, the Polytechnic Institute of Health, and boosted the creation of the University of Medical Sciences
At the ceremony on July 26, 1977, he praised the work of the Revolution in Camagüey; and in 1989, when the Plaza de la Revolución Mayor General Ignacio Agramonte opened, he called for turning this province into a development model.
At the commemorative evening for the centenary of the fall of Mayor Ignacio Agramonte, in the Plaza de San Juan de Dios, he gave a masterful history lesson, and marked the way for the people of Camagüey.
Today, the revolitionary youth made a tour of various institutions and sites visited by Commander in Chief Fidel Castro in the city of Camagüey, where they ratify the commitment to continue the work of the Revolution. (Photo: File)
