Viñales

Land of tobacco and the best natural views of Cuba, Viñales is located in the westernmost area of the island, in the Sierra de Los Órganos. The valley was declared a Natural World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1999. With a bucolic environment and extraordinary nature, it is the ideal place to stay away from the bustle of big cities. Full of beautiful landscapes crowned by mogotes and tobacco plantations and dryers, cornfields, coffee crops, tobacco, sugar cane, orange, avocado and bananas. It also has a varied flora, with around 17 endemic species. Caves, tall pine forests, reddish earth, real palms and rustic houses with roofs of palm leaves. Viñales offers the opportunity to practice hiking, climbing, horseback riding and cycling. Although the main attraction of Viñales lies in the valley, the town preserves the traditional scenario of a farmers' settlement. Colonial houses with red tiles, wide columns and portals flank the main street. The most important buildings are located in the main square or Martí park, including the Casa de la Cultura, the oldest.
