The main interest of Viñales craft fair doesn't lie in the place where it is, as many people might think. Although at first glance it may seem the natural beauty (the landscape that reminds a trip postcard in a far away and quite land) is enough to erase the rest, that’s not true.
You can be positive sure this is a very out of common market. You will find here surprising handicrafts made of animal bones (such as cow horn), leather, wood, and if you’re lucky, even pink marble. Rings, hats, belts, shoes, handbags, ashtrays, maracas, key rings, tinny chests are usual offers. Do the shopping and take with you a piece of Cuba.
The coming and going of visitors and artisans, the tables where necklaces, bracelets and figures with so much colors are in exhibition, all that brings true life and entertainment to this isolated community.
There’s so many things to watch that you won’t hesitate in approaching, asking how much costs that piece, what is made of and bargaining the price you consider excessive.
