Palés
Santa Isabel

 
Hacienda Palés was also throughout the years known as Hacienda Carmen, Hacienda Dos Hermanos and Hacienda Pastor Diaz.  It was located in Barrio Jauca just north of the Jauca Bay in Santa Isabel. 
 
It is unclear to us when or how this property became to be known as Hacienda Palés, the most common name given to it today.  In a study prepared for a windmill project in the area, Architect Jorge Ortiz Colom and Eda M. Burgos PhD indicate that the chimney is where Hacienda Pastor Diaz was and that further to the East along the old railroad tracks and past what is known as Colonia Texidor, is where Hacienda Palés was.  They state that in the Colonia Texidor there are ruins of the old horse stable, a house, a water tank and a hoist part of the Hacienda Pastor Diaz.  
 
It is possible that Hacienda Pastor Diaz and Hacienda Palés became one when Concepción Diaz Molinari, daughter of Spanish immigrant from Asturias Ignacio Diaz Joglar who also owned Hacienda Carlota  and was at one time owner of this property when named Hacienda Carmen and most likely related to Pastor Diaz, married Domingo Palés Anés and hence the name change.
 
 Today, its smoke stack is very close to the north side of PR-1 between Santa Isable and Salinas.
