Wall of Tears (El Muro de las Lágrimas)

At first glance this stone wall doesn't seem like much, but it is the history behind its creation that makes it meaningful. The Wall of Tears was constructed by hundreds of prisoners held captive in a penal colony on the island from 1945 to 1959. The colony was created by then President José María Velasco Ibarra in 1944, using infrastructure left by the U.S. military after World War II. Prisoners were instructed to build the wall to keep busy, and they would haul and cut large chunks of volcanic rock in the hot sun to do so. 

The prison was eventually abandoned after a revolt in 1959, but the wall stands as a testament to the suffering and the loss of many lives here. The wall stands nearly 65 feet tall and is known as the Wall of Tears by locals who claim to hear the cries of prisoners and feel the heavy energy around the wall.

Practical Info

The Wall of Tears is located on Isabela Island in the Galapagos. It located roughly three miles west of Puerto Villamil. The road leading to it is closed to motor vehicles, but visitors can still walk or bike there.
