This place is located into the old San Juan. It is a very nice stroll where you can feel the charm of the city while doing some shopping or enjoying the local cuisine. It is a nice place to be for 1-2 hours during your stay in Puerto Rico.

Nice stroll. Past the second oldest Cathedral in the Americas. The oldest active streets in the Americas exit from Christo to the south to the gate. Ends at the quirky Christo chapel where mass is celebrated (Schedule??). The chapel is pretty spectacular. As per the entire stay in Old San Juan a surprising small park with stunning views of the...

Great place to people watch while shopping and site seeing in Old San Juan. Beautiful old buildings with a Spanish flare. Many different types of stores. Something for everyone.

We took the free tram to the fort. There are lots of trolley stops you can hop on that drop you off at the fort. There are two forts and one entrance fee covers both admissions. There is lots of walking and not much shade to sit and rest. Very interesting and lots of history. Lots of reading to get... More

There is something magical about this spot - it will bring your faith back. Nice walk to the place down cobblestone streets with side cat alleys. There is a small place to purchase trinkets next to it when open and the pigeon park next door is wonderful too. Must do. Read the history and legends before you go please. Thank... More

Although I heard several versions of the legend of the chapel, one could get a feel for what could have possibly happened - the stones of the pavement are quite beautiful and have withstood 500 years,

Many stores, church, hotel, places to munch. The legend states that when the buggies were used at the top of the hill, the horse got spooked and ran down with a child inside. The father asked God to save his child and wherever he was saved he would build a church. The spooked horse stopped on the verge of a... More

We were sent in this direction by the staff at Don Collins Cigar Shop who were recommending places for a cocktail. This is a great spot in Old San Juan if only to soak in more of the character and architecture. It was excellent for people watching and we did stop for cocktails at the place on the east side...

Beautiful street with the church at the end and a park next to it. We were lucky to run into this lady that gave us tips on where to go and what else to do. Puerto Rico has very friendly people.
