The birthplace of the twentieth-century leftist revolutionary icon Ernesto “Che” Guevara has been put up for sale in the city of Rosario, Argentine. Francisco Farruggia, the current owner of the property, said that he had bought the apartment in 2002 in a neo-classical style building in the city.

Though he had always wanted to turn the place into a cultural center, due to several issues, the plan never materialized. However, he had not mentioned the asking price he would put on.

The building between Entre Ríos and Urquizo has also attracted several illustrious visitors and tourists over the years. These included the children of Fidel Castro, Cuba’s revolutionary leader, and Uruguay’s ex-President José Pepe Mujica.

But perhaps, Alberto Granados remained the most famous visitor who also traveled with Che in the 1950s through South America by motorcycle when he was a young doctor.

In 1928, Che Guevara was born in a wealthy middle-class family. However, later, he was radicalized by the hunger and poverty he saw in South America. Che played a vital role in the 1953-59 Cuban revolution, which overthrew the country’s dictator Fulgencio Batista.

Then he expressed his desire to extend the revolution across South America and other developing countries across the world. Che traveled to Bolivia from Cuba to lead the rebel forces against the regime of President René Barrientos Ortuño.

The Bolivian army, with the help of the US, captured Che Guevara along his remaining fighters. On 9 October 1967, he was executed in the village of La Higuera, and his body was buried at a secret location.

However, his remains were discovered in 1997, exhumed and returned to Cuba, where he was reburied with honor. The Cuban revolutionary icon still divides opinion as much today as he did in life. He is seen as an example of self-sacrifice and commitment, and his critics see him as cruel and brutal.
