City of the Revolt
To most Puerto Ricans, Lares remains best known as the site of an 1868 uprising against the rule of Spain. For foreign visitors, the town represents a pleasant getaway from San Juan, located just over an hour away by car. With small stores and well-preserved colonial churches, Lares remains a small town at its core, largely unspoiled by mass tourism despite its historical significance. Holidays in Lares include walking tours of the town's neighborhoods and trips into the surrounding countryside, where locals grow avocados, oranges, and bananas. If you time your trip to Lares for one of the town's festivals, you can meet the residents and take part in lively celebrations of the local culture. With the Inspirock online itinerary creator, Lares and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
