Hundreds of visitors, both Cuban and foreign, are concentrated every night in La Cabaña, with their cell phones and tablets turned on so as not to miss any detail. Everything is recorded from the entrance of the soldiers with loops, hats and colonial costumes, (who are actually young artillery cadets) carrying lit torches and singing at full pitch, with a peculiar rhythm, the word silence, to then announce the beginning of the ritual, which ends with the firing of an 18th century cannon.
