Puerto Rico: Iconic tourist landmark, Punta Ventana collapses in earthquake

Famous tourist landmark and one of Puerto Rico’s most cherished natural wonders, Punta Ventana has collapsed after an earthquake shook the island. Punta Ventana, which translates to “Window Point,” was a stone arch shaped like a round window located in Guayanilla along the southern coast. The rock formation was one of the island’s most iconic treasures and major tourist attractions. A 5.8 magnitude earthquake had struck the island, wiping out the natural structure. A colonial church constructed in 1841 has also been totally collapsed. It is likely the most damaging quake to impact the island since 1918.
