Viñales Valley is a valley in Cuba. Within this valley are farmers from many different ethnic groups. They still use traditional methods of cultivation, particularly of tobacco. Their farm and village houses are a reflection of the style of architecture prevalent in Cuba and elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Viñales Valley was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site during the 23rd session of the World Heritage Committee which met in Marrakesh, Morocco, from 29 November to 4 December, 1999.
