Mural de la Prehistoria

Fodor's Review

At Dos Hermanas Mogote, Diego Rivera disciple Leovigildo González (or the 25 farmers he directed) painted the immense Mural de la Prehistoria—200 x 300 meters (660 x 990 feet)—between 1959 and 1962. Commissioned by Fidel Castro, the painting depicts the evolutionary process in the Sierra de los Órganos. The on-site restaurant serves a roast pig dish that's worth the trip on its own.
