Valley of San Luis

Tourist Attractions

The vast and near Valley of San Luis, also known as Valley of the Mills, shows the splendor that the sugar industry gave to this villa at the end of the XVII century. This Valley,declared World Heritage by UNESCO, is also an important ecological reserve.

It is said that at the time of its highest splendor, this area was the main producer of sugar in the country. There were here dozens of mills that could be seen from the top of the Tower of Manaca-Iznaga, 45 meters high and whose bell used to announce the start and end of the work sessions in the plantations of this sweet gramineous. 75 ruins of mills, summer houses, living quarters of slaves and other facilities related to the production of this highly demanded produce have been preserved until today.
