Las Terrazas, an ecological community 60 km from Havana, is located in a mountainous system, which was declared by UNESCO a World Reserve of the Biosphere.
In the late 60s, the area was reforested and a town was built to gather the peasants who were living in dispersed settlements. More than 1200 km of terraces were developed to stop erosion. Highways, bridges, houses, and La Moka hotel were constructed as part of this cultural and social project, under the principle of coexisting with Nature. In addition, you will be able to appreciate French traditions and culture through the reconstructed French ruins of coffee plantations and slaves’ barracks.
