Description

Piletas is a barrio in the municipality of Lares, Puerto Rico. Its population in 2010 was 5,671.

History

Puerto Rico was ceded by Spain in the aftermath of the Spanish–American War under the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1898 and became an unincorporated territory of the United States. In 1899, the United States conducted its first census of Puerto Rico finding that the population of Piletas barrio was 2,455.

Places

In 2017, as Puerto Rico and Lares continued to struggle economically, community leaders decided that unused public schools, including one in Piletas Arce (on Puerto Rico Highway 129), would be used by the agricultural industry of Lares. The school became a community center for local farmers.La Piramide de Piletas Restaurant, located in Sector Las Lajas, was featured by the Puerto Rico Department of Tourism Discover Puerto Rico campaign.
