“Make your way to this.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

After 4 visits to Old San Juan, it had the gates open. I've been there when I thought they were to be open, but no luck.This time it was Sunday around 2pm. and there was a carnival ship in. Inside has framed history and a silver alter with kneelers in front of it. I purchased some things to help support the small chapel and kicked in a little more into the collection box. I hope more people can experience this special place as well.

“A "must see" in a "must see" city”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

The Chapel of Christ the Saviour (Capilla del Santo Cristo de la Salud) is one of the must see in Old San Juan. FIlled with history and legends, it is one of the most emblematic monuments in this historical city. If you are lucky enough, you might be able to visit a day when the chapel is open and will appreciate up close the silver-covered altar.

“Well preserved and beautiful”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

This is a very small chapel with a lot of history inside it. I really loved the setting overlooking the bay.

“Chapel of Christ the Savior”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful little chapel but they do not let you go in, and there is no one to explain any of the history. And there is a bronzed pair of baby shoes on the side in the back with no explanation of why. It just would be nice if there was more info.
