San Miquel cave is one of the attractions of the province of Pinar del Rio. Cueva San Miquel is located a few kilometers before the Cueva del Indio on the road to San Vincente. A narrow passage between two ‘mogotes’ is used as entrance to the cave. The Cueva San Miguel has sheltered many people in the tides of time. The aboriginal people, the runaway slaves and the rebels during the Cuban revolution lived there. The Cueva San Miquel was altogether a house, a haven and a hideout. If some of the cave dwellers flee to escape hardship and domination, others live there without any fear. The marooned slaves supplied with crystal clear water even practiced subsistence farming within the caves. Setting up a community in the ‘palenque’, the runaway slaves survived. However, it should be noticed that for the Amerindians the caves were sacred being used for burial purposes. Nowdays, the Cueva San Miquel has been transformed into a restaurant where one can taste the Cuban cuisine.
