Great setting, nearby restaurant OK, but fairly rubbish art I'm afraid. Seems to be part of the "required to visit" route for all tourists, but thankfully it is quick and the visual pain passes quickly.

Firstly it's not pre-historic as Fidel commissioned it and is a garish defacement of a mogote ! If you have your own transport you can drive close enough to see it without paying any entrance fee.

What can you say really, they took a large piece of mountain (180m x 120m) painted it in bright colours, and put a restaurant right next to it.

Love it or hate it, at least it's 'different'.

This is a badly painted mural of prehistory on a large cliff face. It's totally out of keeping with the surrounding glorious countryside and is an abomination - purely my opinion, though the rest of my group weren't impressed either.
