The statue itself is interesting but not amazing. However, hearing the story behind the invasion of the British, and seeing the views from this spot, make a visit worth it.

This isn't your standard sculpture of saints. It's modern (1971) and mysteriously evokes the event of 1797 when the saints made their procession through the streets of San Juan and repelled the attacking British. And it is in such a beautiful place--the bluff overlooking the city wall and Atlantic Ocean. Don't miss it!

Historical and legendary. As you come up upon it you must realize what the Dutch and Sir Francis Drake must of thought when their ships were about to attack and thought that the Spaniards were waiting for them. He ordered his ships around and left. Surprise, surprise it was only La Rogativa a sculpture.
