This walkway around El Morro is great for walking or jogging. Offers wonderful views of the castillo above and the bay below. Not recommended for us after dark. There are a great number of cats about and sometimes there's a smell in certain areas.

Take the short walk around the wall and enjoy the seaside. It offers beautiful views of the ocean and fortress walls, ending/starting by the entrance to the city, just below the Governor's castle.

One way of viewing the City Walls is to walk through San Juan Gate on the West Side of the old city for an impressive view of the walls behind you and the bay in front of you. One section of the northwest portion of the walls is currently being sand-blasted and restored to it original off-white; the walls must... More

One of my favorite things to do in Old San Juan, just wondering the perimeter of the wall. The walkways are nice and there are many things to ogle.

Walking along the nice walkway they have built is like going back in time. You feel like you're on the set of Game of Thrones as you stare up at this magnificent wall and look out on the bay and then ocean. Easy walk and leads you to the forts and other attractions.

It's very pretty. And it's definitely something that should be on the list of a history lover. Or even a cat lover. We saw at least 50 cats along the way.

Learn the history of the old fort while taking a relaxed walk around the wall. It is a true beauty of history, nature and the people. Get fit though, cause you will go through lots of stairs...

walls that once sealed off and protected this city. Just beautiful history. Glad they weren't destroyed. The city has tried to keep up on them.Bring good foot ware, there is so much to see and do with walking.It is quite inspiring to walk along side the wall and think about all the history. You can access from Paseo Princesa and... More
