The Written Stone
Jayuya, Puerto Rico
The Written Stone or “La Piedra Escrita” is a historical place of Jayuya, Puerto Rico. Several hundred years ago this beautiful place was inhabited by the Indians, who accomplish stone writing of symbols of their culture. Today you can visit "El Área Recreativa La Piedra Escrita” and walk along a boardwalk that takes you to the Rio Saliente and The Written Stone. At several points in the boardwalk there are towers, allowing you a beautiful view of the mountains of PR and the river. Once in the river you will see a huge stone that blocks the passage, on top of the stone are written Indigenous Petroglyphs. The stone creates a natural pool that visitors often enjoy. The more adventurous, climb the rock and jump into the water. The recreation area has parking and benches with tables. Admission is free.
