“San Juan Gate, a welcoming venture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

It was nice to see a bit of history, where visitors would be welcomed to the city, back in the day, in this particular spot, as well as present day visitations. A stroll along the water, past beautiful trees and part of the walled city was welcoming.

“Scenic walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Their is no denying that the view is very nice and the photos taken are quite nice but the smell of cats is a bit to much when you are not a cat person. Be sure to bring and umbrella since their is no shade.
