Of all the sites in Old San Juan, this one was a nice surprise. The oldest house in the Americas still in use, it was built in 1521. A simple stop between El Morro and Ponce de Leon's statue. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. They have a nice mix of original and representative pieces of furniture, art, weapons, etc. Since my wife is a descendant of Ponce de Leon, we were especially excited to see the original crest of the Leon/Troche family on the walls, and carved into furniture. There's a nice walkway in front of the house where you can get a peak of the harbor from a balcony.
