ISABEL RUBIO STONE FOREST (BOSQUE DE PIEDRA)
This place, due to its incomparable natural beauty, was declared a National Monument and is located in the settlement of the same name, in the municipality of Guane, in the eastern province of Pinar del Río.
It is located in the mountain chains of Guaniguanico (Cordillera de Guaniguanico), in the extreme eastern part of the Sierra de los Órganos, divided by the Cuyaguateje river, this being the largest river in the province with a high degree of conservation. It is the largest reservoir of fresh water, and within it are a great variety of well preserved ecosystems that host a myriad of species, making it one of the greatest displays of biodiversity on the island.
The landscape is made up of carbonated rocks from the Jagua and Guasasa formations, dating from the Jurassic and Cretacic periods, featuring curious sculpted rocky hillocks (mogotes) that are over ten meters high with suggestive shapes.
