Palacete Los Moreau
Moca, Puerto Rico

This beautiful structure has a special place in Puerto Rican literature as the Hacienda Palmeras, the residence of the Moreau family in the novel “La llamarada” (1935) by Enrique Laguerre, a Puerto Rican writer born in Moca. The Moreau family lived in the Hacieanda during the time Don Enrique wrote the novel. Don Enrique, was born and raised on this land called Aceituna of Moca.

Today the building belongs to the municipality of Moca, since it was acquired in 1993 and decided to restore it, now it serves as their office of Culture and Tourism. The staff offers tours of the hacienda where their history is taught.

During the kite season the hacienda offers many outdoor activities, since it has large open fields. In the castle lands there is a radio control club, where fans gather to flight remote control airplanes and helicopters.

Admission is free and is open from Thursday through Monday from 9 AM to 5 PM. If you are on a trip on the west of PR and you like history, you should not miss the place where “La llamarada” was written.

***Importante*** La hacienda la cierran a las 3:30pm y NO a las 5pm como dice esta página. Suerte que la persona que nos atendió fue muy amable y nos dio 2 minutos para recorrer el interior. Hermoso lugar, pero lo visitaría si estoy en el área, no para ir exclusivamnete a eso.
