AbstractThis essay proposes a detailed look at an ignored yet pervasive element in Puerto Rican pathways: memorial crosses on roads. These have for many years been used to commemorate the death of loved ones. This essay narrates a material description of these crosses, proposing them as temporal and spatial markers - integrated components of Puerto Rico roads. Similarly, the road is contemplated here as a memorial space, using theoretical underpinnings that deal with space and memory, particularly historian Pierre Nora's concept of lieux de memoire.
