Diego Rivera painted La Quebrada in the house that Dolores Olmedo had in Acapulco, where he lived his last years, convalescing from the cancer he suffered. Rivera dedicated this artwork to Frida Kahlo, two years after she died.
La Quebrada is one of the most famous spots in Acapulco. Many tourists visit this place everyday, in order to see the spectacular show of the divers jumping from the cliffs into the sea.
