Mural de la Prehistoria, Vinales

1.6
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.

  • Like everything else here also emits this again as much calm. Entrance fee is 3 Cuc but then you can get a free drink. Nice place

  • A large painting directly on the mountain that is beautiful from afar but should also be seen up close to see which job is cancelled, every cavity o pit is filled with color.

  • Nothing to say... as I have to put a certain number of character, 3 euros / person to see a big coloring on a hill

  • Well, they could have painted anything else. In my opinion even a painting of the Che, Camilo and Fidel would have been much nicer than the one they painted (at least it would be like the Roosevelt mount). The painting are anything but prehistoric, and if you are lucky you can see the people repainting it (because the water take away the paint). Nevertheless it is better to go and see by your self but totally unworthy to pay the 3CUC they ask as you will see it just good enough from outside.
  • Colorful painting on the rocks. Nothing special. It is not worthwhile paying for watching it. You can admire it from the outside for free.
  • Very impressive. Just wonder why he did it.
  • Nothing much to see. Just stop at the entrance to take a photo and don't pay the 3 CUC.
  • Proof that someone has a sense of humor. This tacky monument can be seen from the road, no need to pay to go inside unless you want a drink or need a restroom.
