The Sierra de Guadalupe cave paintings are a series of prehistoric rock art pictographs near Rancho La Trinidad, Mulegé in Baja California, Mexico.

They form part of Central Baja's 'great mural tradition' and are protected by Mexican law. The largest of several rock walls features the 'Trinidad deer', one of the best deer paintings in Baja. The area also includes images of shamanistic figures; fish (including perhaps the only fish skeleton in Baja) and other marine creatures; hand prints; and female genitals.
