Fodor's Review

Across the massive rock face of Mogote Dos Hermanas, Diego Rivera disciple Leovigildo González (or the 25 farmers he directed) painted this immense—200 x 300 meters (660 x 990 feet)—luridly colored mural of prehistoric men and creatures, between 1959 and 1962. Commissioned by Fidel Castro, the painting is supposed to depict the evolutionary process in the Sierra de los Órganos. No need to pay the entrance fee; you can see it just as well from the road.
