It was in Biran that the father of Fidel and Raul, Angel Castro, a former soldier of the Spanish Army, settled. He raised a family of six children and went from a poor farmer in Spain to owning an 11,000-hectare state, mostly dedicated to sugarcane production. The family house, which was destroyed by fire in 1954, was rebuilt almost to perfection and has been turned into a museum.
