Mural de la Prehistoria, Vinales

1.6
#8 of 14 in Things to do in Vinales
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.

    Turns out to be a work of art great by its size giant inflatable 120 x 100 meters. Something so big that when you stop to see her you feel tiny beside her. And not only the mural, but the Valley as such where there is

    In this place is paid by the entry and whether only a mural painted, together there is a restaurant on the side. There is no type of attraction to do.

    The painting on the rocks is huge and somewhat bizarre. Locals say it came to be after a bet between the artist and his girlfriend. The surrounding area is beautiful.

    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.
