El Moncada is a village some 20 km east of Viñales in wonderful landscape with lots of vegetation on Karst hills. There is the memorial "Los Malagones" in el Moncada reminiscent of 12 rural revolutionary soldiers who ousted a counterrevolutionary band from the nearby mountains in 1959. A rock throw apart is the foot of the hill You can climb to enter Cuba's largest sytem of caves. A very firendly guide may lead You through big halls of flowstone and show You walls where bats hang upside down.
