The Little Neighbourhood Of Las Palmitas Has Become Mexico's Biggest Piece of Graffiti Art...

It used to be that the little neighbourhood of Las Palmitas in Pachuca, a hundred or so miles from Mexico City was known only as a poor and violent community.
But now, thanks to the efforts of the local and national government bodies, organised graffiti artists have executed the biggest mural in Mexico and restored some pride back to the folk of the now very colourful community.
We painted two hundred and nine homes said the project director Enrique Gomez. It's been a community effort as each household participated in some way.
Way to go Las Palmitas.
If you can dream it, you can do it...


  1. A wonderful heart-warming project. It must have been fun to play with the beautiful colours. I would like to see that part of the town with my own eyes.
    It's valuable to remember such story of the good things that happens in a world where many things seems to go totally wrong.

  2. Some people are so talented. I love it. Pip

  3. So beautiful. Some people are so clever. Pip
