In memory of Fidel Castro. A year ago, numerous trucks loaded with construction materials began arriving at the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery in the city of Santiago, in eastern Cuba. On Saturday, a white cloth covered a new structure near the mausoleum of José Martí, the hero of Cuban independence.

Beyond these small clues, the details of the definitive place where the ashes of Castro will rest are one of the best kept secrets on the island. This veil of mystery will rise on Sunday morning when the ashes of the late revolutionary leader are buried in a ceremony that is expected to offer the world at least a hint of a tomb that will immediately become one of the most important sites in the country.
