Calle del Cristo is a lovely street leading to a beautiful, very old little chapel and many pigeons. Picturesque best describes the view of the chapel from the street; it reminded me of Europe. Our favorite Mexican restaurant, El Parnaso, is located on this street as well- and allows us to sit outside with a view of the chapel and... More

Love the cobblestone streets and the old buildings! If you are a bird lover, search out the area to feed the pigeons, you will be amazed at how many there are!

We enjoyed everything about this area, and were thrilled to have time to stroll through the narrow passageways and check out all the stores and little boutiques. (Although we did not have time to go into the church.) I highly recommend that you also pass by the stalls and booths of the local vendors as you walk through, as they... More

I attended Mass at the cathedral of San Juan Bautista. This cathedral was beautiful. It is a very old cathedral and it has so much history. I loved it, the mass was in Spanish.

Everything in San juan is walking distance.. if u don't mind the heat.. it is best to walk.. love this little shopping district. It is very hard to find parking.. usually have to pay parking coz it gets busy around here. Enjoy the area.. take your time wandering and window shopping too.

If you like to shop. This street, full of history an beautiful buildings like the Cathedral, is also hme to many store outlets like Coach and Puma....So. If you are in the mood for some history and culture and shopping, make it a point to visit Old San Juan.

Some of the toniest stores in San Juan are found on Calle del Cristo but what we loved most about it was the area surrounding San Juan Cathedral. Here you will find the pretty Plazuela Las Monjas and a very pretty cobblestone street than runs down to the San Juan Gate. Do your shopping but make sure to save time... More
