"El Grito de Lares"
This is a quality reproduction of an original watercolor sketch by Luis E. Aparicio. The original sketch was done on location at the Plaza de la Revolución, in Lares, Puerto Rico. The original piece has been sold.
In 1868, the town of Lares was witness to Puerto Rico’s first attempt at independence. The failed uprising against Spanish rule had it’s epicenter at the town square, now known as the Plaza de la Revolución. From here, rebels proclaimed the island a republic, placing their flag upon the altar of the nearby Iglesia San José.
A monument to the rebellion’s leader, Ramón Emeterio Betances, now stands in the middle of the plaza, where visitors flock every September 23rd to celebrate the anniversary of ‘El Grito de Lares’ as it is historically known.
