This infamous 10 meter high wall constructed in volcanic rock is a sad memory of the history of Isabela. Between the years of 1946 and 1959, the island was a colonial jail, where the prisoners were forced to build this rock wall as punishment, which was later called the Muro de Las Lagrimas (Wall of Tears) for the large number of convicts who lost their life in its construction. It's thought that the goal of the wall was to distract the convicts from their loneliness and isolation.
