The USSR thought that Castro and Guevara were nutcases, so they tried to remove them in 1962, I believe (microfacción). Castro detected the conspiracy, so he got rid of Che, among many others with considerable heterodoxy
Franco was a Gallego, like the parents of the Castro brothers. There are some similar personality traits.
