Well it was rainig when we came but still the view on the mural was nice. Nothing so spectacular just because it actually is not prehistorical, the theme is just prehistorical painted few decades ago. Since it is all green and grey a little bit...More

We went because so much is said of this mural. However, once you've looked at the mural there is nothing to do unless you want a meal in the uninspiring restaurant. I like art but this didn't do it for me.

Some artist was allowed to paint the wall of the mountain back in the 60-ties shwoing figures which resembles archelogial findings in the area. It can be questioned how well done it is and if it adds to the beauty of the valley, but it...More

This is really one of the most awful murals we have seen, and only the sentiment around the fact that Fidel requested the painting thereof puts it on the list of things to see in Cuba. And to pay entrance fee to view it, is...More

Just getting to this location is worth the trip. Beautiful country side and villages. The painting edged in the mountain is colorful an vibrant.

We made a point of going here after our horseback ride of the valley. Was picturesque but wouldn’t say a “must-see”
