Spanish soldier and politician, born in San Juan de Puerto Rico, where his father was assigned. Luis Padial Vizcarrondo was the son of the Spanish soldier Luis María Padial Medina (1802‑1866) and Margarita Gila Vizcarrondo Ortiz de Zárate (1810‑1887), in turn, daughter of Colonel Andrés Vizcarrondo. He was brother, among others, of Antonio, Felix and Herminio Padial Vizcarrondo; all of them were abolitionists in Puerto Rico.

His parents sent him to Spain in order to study the military career at the Toledo Infantry Academy.

As an officer of the Spanish army, in 1863 he participated in the campaign of Santo Domingo, which was destined to quell the independence revolt of the Caribbean island. For this reason, he was appointed Aide-de-Camp to the Captain General of Santo Domingo.

He was a deputy in the first democratic parliament of Spain (1869‑1873) and he played an outstanding role in the partial abolition of slavery in Puerto Rico.
