The Topes de Collantes Natural Park is located in the Sierra del Escambray, at the gates of Trinidad.

Perched at an altitude of 700 meters, the park served in the 1950s as a refuge for the revolutionary forces led by Che Guevara.

A few years later, it was the turn of counter-revolutionary groups opposing the Castro regime to take refuge there.

A paradise for nature lovers, the park has an incredible diversity of flora and fauna and is home to many endemic species.
