Parque Memorial Bahía de Cochinos

Bay of Pigs Memorial Park (200 SW 56th Avenue, Miami) – the memorial in this park is a shrine for the Cuban exile cause. It commemorates the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961, involving the failed attempt by armed Cuban exiles to overthrow then-new Cuban ruler Fidel Castro. The memorial is for both those who died, as well as those who were captured by Castro’s Marxist army.
