Painted Houses of Aguadilla – Pintalto Strikes Again!

Aguadilla, a lovely coastal town on the north west coast of Puerto Rico, is decked out in a riot of color. The large macromural, called “Amanecer Borincano” (Boriquen Sunrise) in its totality, is located on the hill (Cerro Cabrera) above Rompeolas Beach. Completed in December 2018, the work is comprised of the hill of painted houses, which each look like colorful mosaics, plus a number of actual murals painted on various walls and buildings in the area.

Aguadilla Pintalto

Proyecto Pintalto and its founder, Samuel González, are behind most of the macromurals in various towns throughout Puerto Rico. Following his dream, together with many volunteers from the community and other areas, various local muralists, and the support of Lanco paint company and the town mayer, everyone worked to make this beautiful riot of color. The idea behind these colorful works is to bring people together and help communities revitalize their area. In doing so, they transform communities into tourist destinations

Aguadilla Pintalto

This macromural is dedicated to the fishermen of Aguadilla. At the base of the hill you will find a beautiful mural depicting fishermen throwing their nets of color on the houses. You will notice a number of sea and coastal themes in some of the murals. It makes this an outdoor art museum!

Aguadilla Pintalto

This colorful hill is just one of the many pretty things in this area, definitely worth a visit! It colors are a bit faded since it was painted, but it is still really pretty!

Other macromural areas are in Las Piedras, Río Grande, Manatí, and Yauco.
