Santiago de Cuba is undergoing a makeover before the funeral cortege of the late Fidel Castro arrives ahead of Sunday’s funeral.

The seven vehicle cavalcade left Havana to begin a four-day journey across the island.

Thousands of Cuban’s have lined the route to pay their respects to the former president.

Santiago de Cuba is birthplace of the Cuban Revolution, where in 1953 Fidel Castro led a shambolic attack on the Moncada Barracks.
