The neighborhood is run down, then you come across this jewel. Makes me want to buy the house across the road so I can look at it every day!

I really enjoyed visiting this site especially since I just saw on TV the movie Frieda for the second time. It is such an interesting story about Diego Rivera the painter and his wife Frieda The murals are very colorful. Very different from the usual paintings of Diego.

The tiled murals are gorgeous. If you have a tour or a taxi it is worth it to drive by to see. Next year the house is supposed to be remodeled and converted to a museum. Would definitely be something to go back to see

Rivera is most surely Mexico's most famous painter. His works are a lesson in history of the Mexicain people. He had a summer house in Acapulco which he decorated with his works. The house was abandoned for a few years but the last governor of Guerero decided that the restauration would be good for tourism. Don't miss it

I love a history story so to think this is the house Deigo Rivera went to stay after his fights with Frida, cool

Very surprising to find just along one of the little roads. It is very beautiful but you really should either read up about it first or go with a guide who knows the story. (eg. Sebastian with "Acapulco for All"

If you are doing a tour with Sebastian from Acapulco for All like we did, you will get to see this mural and hear why it was created. It's a fun story and was a neat little part of our tour.

I would not have have found this without the help of a knowledgeable tour guide. Sebastian Hernanez not only took us there, but gave us details we would have missed.

We were not aware of Diego Rivera's (and Dolores Olmedo's) connection to Acapulco until we saw this bas-relief work while on a city tour of Acapulco. Not a typical Diego Rivera piece, but it (and the story behind it, his relationship with Olmedo, and the symbols in the piece) provides some interesting insight into his life.
