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.

  • If you travel to the Vinales Valley, then you must go see this. You have a good view from the road or you can take a 10 minute walk to get closer to the mural. It is not really a Moira’s completed in ...  more »
  • If you’re on bikes and are so inclined then you can get there pretty quickly but I wouldn’t suggest spending time walking there as it is literally just a 1950s paining on the side of the mountain.  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.
  • You can enjoy art on mountains in this quiet place.
  • 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.
  • 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.
