Adjuntas The City of the sleeping Giant

It has begun!....from now on Voypallá will focus on one town in Puerto Rico per week and what better way to start than with one of our favorite mountain towns from this island. Adjuntas is located in the central mid-west area of the "Cordillera Central" and is know as the "City of the Sleeping Giant" this is in reference to one of the mountains in the town that resemble a person laying on it's back. It's also know as "The Switzerland of Puerto Rico" for it's year round low temperatures that average 72℉. Adjuntas was founded in 1815 and the name of the city comes from the term tierras adjuntas (adjoining lands) because their territory was part of the old Villa de San Blás de Illescas, (known today as Coamo) and often referred to as las tierras adjuntas a Coamo.
