La Ballaja - The Barracks, San Juan
The Cuartel de Ballajá, or "Ballajá Barracks," once housed Spanish troops during the 1800's and later became the quarters for American soldiers following the Spanish-American War. This building has also been used as a military hospital during World War II.
The second floor of the barracks is now El Museo de Las Americas which has three permanent collections, the African Heritage, the Indian in America, and Popular Arts in America.
