    You definately need more than a day to see Old San Juan. We spent a day here and didn't see half of the things we wanted to see. I absolutely loved the pastels of the buildings.

    The old city is well restored and beautifully painted in pastel colors. This is one of the most romantic cities I have been to.

    The well-preserved fortress walls encircle the old quarter and lend an unmistakable backdrop to the views of the city and the sea.

    The best way to experience Old San Juan is by taking a walk through its streets.

    Customshouse

    La Aduana de Puerto Rico

    I didn't go inside it, but this is the original customshouse of Puerto Rico. Now used by cruise lines as an office and port for their boats, it is still a sight to see.

    Old San Juan shopping district

    We had a very enjoyable visit to Old San Juan. We saw both forts, El Morro and San Cristobal, as well as the Cathederal. We also enjoyed walking through the narrow streets of the shopping district.

    san juan fort

    Visit one of the forts for great views of the city. There is a fee for the forts. Be prepared to climb up stairs.

    Building Facade and Balconies of Old San Juan

    by virtualpatrick Updated May 11, 2004

    You can't help but admire the tapestry of colors painted on the buildings of Old San Juan. Even more interesting are the balconies - look at the intricate iron work / wood work.

    I do think, that the old part of downtown San Juan, is one of the best preserved heritages of Spanish architecture in all of the Caribbean.
