World Heritage.

In the Viñales Valley, color and nature converge, from the Mural of Prehistory to the exuberant tobacco plantations. Recognized as the garden of Cuba. Its valley is declared by UNESCO in 1999, Cultural Landscape of Humanity. Viñales is baptized in the early 1800s by tobacco growers from the Canary Islands. According to the story they were located in the now known Vuelta Abajo. Paradoxically, the first records of settlements date back to 1871 by Don Andrés, owner of the first hacienda. However, is until the 1878s that this town was registered as a town, its hospital, park, school and church being founded.

Located just 4 km from Viñales, it runs along the slope of the mogote called Pita. This beautiful and wide mural measuring around 120 meters was made by several artists for 4 years. The original idea of ​​recreating on these cliffs, the highest in the Sierra de los Órganos, dinosaurs, sea monsters, the Guanahatabeyes Indians and a huge snail was Celia Sánchez, Alicia Alonso and Antonio Núñez Jiménez, great exponents of our history and culture.

According to the experts, the painting reflects in itself the historical evolution in which the world has developed.
