The “Punta Borinquen” Lighthouse” was one of the many lighthouses built by the Spaniards in Puerto Rico. The all-brick structure was built in 1889 and destroyed beyond repair by a powerful earthquake in 1918.
All that’s left today are two brick walls, the concrete floor and part of the foundation. However, it remains a favorite among photographers who find inspiration in its open windows, bare brick surfaces and beautiful surroundings.
This is also a secluded area. So don’t go alone, especially late in the day and with expensive camera gear.
