Earthquake destroys Punta Ventana, one of Puerto Rico’s natural wonders!

Sharing is Caring!

A popular tourist attraction has collapsed in Puerto Rico after a 5.8 magnitude earthquake and several aftershocks struck Guayanilla on Monday.

Punta Ventana (Window Point) is a natural rock formation that was created by a variety of factors including mineral and rock composition and centuries of ocean waves crashing against the structure.

The stone arch that resembles a window is one of the biggest tourism draws of Guayanilla and residents are concerned about the loss of a longstanding icon.

The student-run meteorological laboratory at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez tweeted before and after images of Punta Ventana that show how the landscape is permanently changed.
