Valle de Ingenios

The so called Valle de Ingenios is a very fertile valley which was used to cultivate sugar cane in former times. The landscape is overwhelming.
The second picture shows a sugar mill which was used to squeeze out the juice from the sugar cane.
The third picture shows a big tower that was used to keep the slaves, which were working on the sugar fields, under surveillance. Nowadays it’s a tourist point which offers a beautiful view over the valley.
