“Amazing Artwork and History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful tile artwork that could be viewed on the wall outside this house!! We loved it even more as the history was explained by our wonderful tour guides - Benjamin and Roberto Alarcon. The mural was so much more interesting once you know the meaning behind all the characters Rivera chose and why. Be sure to notice the beautiful ceiling murals inside as well - gorgeous!!

“Historical Heritage and Contemporary Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I truly love the Diego Rivera Wall Mural Mosaic but what really made it special was the love story behind the masterpiece, which Sebastian shared with us...(everyone loves a good love story). "The House of the Wind” that expressed his love, appreciation of the generosity, friendship, and love that he had experienced through his lifetime.

“Mindblowing work.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I have been to art museums all over this country and Europe and I've never seen anything like this! The detail is remarkable and to think that this masterpiece is just on a wall on a narrow street at the top of a hill!

“Diego Rivera, a truly unique artist.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This mural, outside of his house, is totally worth a stop or a very slow driveby. The man was an mural icon and this mural is no exception. Supposedly a Rivera sibling still lives there ! I did not stop to confirm ! SkippyFrizz
