For the first time since Fidel Castro’s rebel army overthrew the government of Fulgencio Batista in 1959, Cuba will see the construction of a new Catholic church.
In the ambitious project slated to start in the eastern Cuban city of Santiago, 25 tons of scrap metal used to construct the stage for Pope Benedict XVI’s 2012 visit to the island will be recycled and used to build the new church.
"Reusing the metal means keeping alive the memory of something good for us Catholics. It gives it new life, so it can serve future generations," Fausto Vélez, the engineer in charge of the project told the BBC.
