La Piedra Escrita

La Piedra Escrita, the “Written Rock,” is a rock with symbols apparently made by pre- Columbian people of the island today called Puerto Rico (called, Boriken by the natives). The rock sits on the Rio Saliente in Jayuya, Puerto Rico. I found this rock of immense interest, partly, because it is not preserved. Visitors come in throngs to climb the rock and swim on the river. The symbols seem of human faces, of circles and curved lines. Though the human faces, and what seems as a frog image, are similar to those of other places around the island, for the most part, the symbols in Jayuya are particular of this place. These type of circles, and the curved lines, are not found in any other region.
