Viñales Valley

Is quite possible that some of the tobacco used in the world famous Cuban cigars is grown in this valley

Viñales Valley
Viñales Valley (Spanish''Valle de Viñales'') is a karstic depression in Cuba. The valley has an area of 132 km2 (51 sq mi) and is located in the Sierra de los Órganos mountains (part of Guaniguanico range), just north of Viñales in the Pinar del Río Province.
Tobacco and other crops are cultivated on the bottom of the valley, mostly by traditional agriculture techniques. Many caves dot the surrounding hillfaces (Cueva del Indio, Cueva de José Miguel). - in: wikipedia
