Mural de la Prehistoria, Vinales

(1.5/5 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.

  • Must be well seen. But the best: Pina colada at the bar (with or without rum) - very refreshing!

  • The best thing about this place is the stall which sells Pina Coladas. They are seriously good – by far the best of those we sampled in Cuba! The “attraction” here is a very large mural painted onto t...  more »

  • 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.
  • Awesome place to be. We had great food and drinks, good music and nice and friendly service.
  • It is a huge murales, not a beautiful one, not much to say, just go here for a few minutes the view around in very nice.
  • Quite interesting, worth taking a look at
  • Please Note: The Mural is not here! Its 5 - 6 kilometres south west from here.
