Declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999, the Viñales Valley is distinguished by a fertile soil, ideal for tobacco growth, karstic outcrops covered with vegetation, and a bucolic atmosphere. All this is sheltered by the quinta of the Sierra de los Organos, part of the Cordillera de Guaniguanico, that appears discretely in the background.

Dichiarata nel 1999 dall’UNESCO Patrimonio Mondiale dell’Umanità, la Valle di Viñales si caratterizza per il suolo fertile, ideale per la coltivazione del tabacco; per alcune escrescenze rocciose di natura carsica, chiamate “mogote”, ricoperte di vegetazione, e per l’atmosfera bucolica. Questo paesaggio è protetto dalla Sierra de los Organos, parte della Cordillera de Guaniguanico, che compare discretamente in prospettiva.
