Another pleasant surprise as you delightfully stroll through Old San Juan. A pleasant place to sit in the shade feel the Atlantic Tradewinds and have a Linder-- a Puerto Rican ice.Read the history behind the sculpture.

The apartment I rented for my stay looked out on the square, so I saw a lot of it over five days, loved the pelicans flying around and coming to roost, the cats coming out at night, and the flower seller coming by!

The LaRogativa is a simple, yet wonderful statue full of Old San Juan history. The statue is located on the street hill past the San Juan Gate on the Paseo del Morro side of town. Hard to find because it out of the way, but quite a sight once you find it.

This landmark of the Old City is located in a hill looking down the bay. Very romantic and interesting at the same time.

If you are walking through Old San Juan don't forget to visit La Rogativa. It's close to the Governor's Mansion and it will make for one of the most beautiful pictures.

The sculpture itself is beautiful, the work of a well known Spanish sculptor who lived in Puerto Rico for many years. But that is not all, it has a great location, with a wonderful view of San Juan Bay. Can’t miss it!

I was on a cruise that docked near old San Juan and we took a guided tour which included stopping at this statue. I was taken aback by the beauty against the sunset. Although it's just a statue and won't take up much of your time, there's a lot to do in the surrounding area. You could easily spend at... More

The statue is well constructed and weathered well so it brings out the gorgeous colors. hard to get the lighting right for pictures as it is backlit for most of the day but it's still well wroth a visit if you are in the area
