UNESCO World Heritage Site
The Viñales valley is encircled by mountains and its landscape is interspersed with dramatic rocky outcrops. Traditional techniques are still in use for agricultural production, particularly of tobacco. The quality of this cultural landscape is enhanced by the vernacular architecture of its farms and villages, where a rich multi-ethnic society survives, illustrating the cultural development of the islands of the Caribbean, and of Cuba.
A day trip from Havana, Viñales Valley is a must-go when you’re in Cuba. Because:
But don’t go in the cave! It means waiting in a line for an hour inside the cave, for nothing. Look at the outside of the cave, see the pretty scenery around the cave, eat at the cafe near the cave… but whatever you do, DO NOT WASTE TIME IN THE CAVE!
We are fascinated with the fields – are those many tobacco leaf plantations?
Makes me think of Kentucky !!!!!
