Overview
More
Created in 2001 by the artist Manuel Diaz Baldrich, Muraleando has transformed the neighborhood into an art gallery. Children form the community and visitors to the project attend classes in pottery, painting, music, dance and engraving aimed at building and developing their artistic skills. This a singular cultural experience and a unique look into Cuban culture, art, food and its way of life.

An amazing and inspiring community center with arts workshop for neighborhood children and grown-ups. Muraleando artists have created a beautiful, and growing, art installation (like an art gallery) of the former water tank converted into a center, and the streets adjacent to it. Loved it.

I loved the architecture, the artwork, the whimsical nature of the building itself and especially the live music presentations. I would highly recommend a visit to this cultural experience if you visit Havana. I think it was the highlight of my trip.
