Description: Testifying to a pioneer form of agriculture in a difficult terrain are the remnants of the 19th-century coffee plantations, found in the foothills of the Sierra Maestra. They enhance our knowledge of the economic, social, and technological history of the Caribbean and Latin American region. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
