Wall of Saints, Todos Santos

The Wall of Saints,’ found in Todos Santos, Baja Sur, reflects the creativity that’s found throughout this magical town, known for its many art galleries and creative atmosphere. A community ‘paint-out’ led to these and other paintings done by children and local artists on the wall, located on Topete Street.

    I love Todos Mexico! The town is also home to Hotel California, a totally surreal visit for any Eagles music fan.

      Howdy, Dian. Sweet town, isn’t it? I went twice and the first time, I didn’t think that much of it. But then, I gave it a second chance and started to like it. I met a sweet woman who sold candy and made piñatas (I really should write about her) and found that the people were nice once you got to know them a bit (versus La Paz where they were super friendly right away).

      I stopped by the Hotel for a few minutes, but didn’t stay too long. People told me that it used to really great years ago before they renovated it. Were you there back then?

      Hi, Mary. Glad you liked it! I believe it was done by mostly children, yes. It was not easy to find info about the wall, strangely. But I read on 2 sites that children did most of it. They’re so creative!

    Those kids are good artists! I think the wall is real nice. And all that stuff behind it, the mud and all, reminds me of my childhood home. It was really nice.

      This reminds you of your childhood home? Where was that?

    Absolutely beautiful! I love street art and think some of it is more appealing than “fine” art.
