Mural de la Prehistoria

Mural de la Prehistoria 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.
