Mural de la Prehistoria, Vinales

(1.6/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Observe the massive Mural de la Prehistoria, painted under the direction of artist Leovigildo Gonzalez between 1959 and 1962. Impressive in size, the painting is 200 m by 300 m (660 ft by 990 ft). To create this work, painters hung from the top of the rock and listened as Leovigildo belted out instructions over a microphone. The result is a vividly colored depiction of prehistoric life, which may not astound you in the artistic sense, but will stun you with its sheer size and the effort put in to create something on such a grand scale.

  • Small road on the left, just before the entrance to the Park. Clicks for one or two photos, story to tell that we have seen this famous wall, then back in the car... all for 1/4 of an hour. The + interesting is on the other side of the road, when the peasant ploughing his field with oxen

  • Ugly and unnecessary human disfigurement of nature, although the story of the effort to do it and the context in which it was decided to do so (should Fidel that goodness has granted to the creator to start work). And to think that the Government spends the money to revive the colors from time to time. MAh! There's better things to do, don't come all the way here to see this mural.

  • This thing proves someone in Cuba has a sense of humor ...and if you pay 3 CUC to see it the joke's on you. You can see it and its gaudy grandeur clearly from the road. It's worth a drive by gawk and that's about it. Unless, of coarse you're looking to use a restroom.
  • Frankly I think the mural is pretty terrible and have no idea what the various artists were thinking but if you find yourself here keep walking the 800 metres following the sign to the viewpoint and take in the views. That makes it worth visiting here.
  • A really nice place to ride with your bike to. They charge money for entrance but you can ask to get in just to take pics.
  • You can see the paintings from the road, and the valley is much nicer than the paintings..
  • The Murales is not here, but 5km on the other side fo the city.
