"Vinales Valley, this picturesque valley was named a UNESCO World Cultural and Landscape Site in 1999, thanks to bucolic farms and villages set against the region's iconic limestone mogotes. Cuban National Parks, for the benefit of the population - often referred to as Paisaje Cultural de la Humanidad.

‘Embellished by soaring pine trees and scattered with bulbous limestone cliffs that teeter like giant haystacks above the peaceful and well tended tobacco plantations. Parque National Viñales is one of Cuba’s most magnificent natural settings’. "
