Old San Juan Deluxe Walking Tour
"There is a magical feeling to the area of Old San Juan and your first thought may be that you are not in the United States. There seems to be nothing that looks as old or has the history on the mainland as you will see in Old San Juan. Founded in 1521 this part of the city of San Juan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as a US Historic Zone. Your walk begins at the water's edge and follows the city wall where the view is spectacular and the past comes alive. There are over 400 well-preserved buildings in the old city that date back to its inception. The architecture is incredible and you will feel as if you are in Europe with cobblestone streets and buildings sitting side by side. Most of the old city will remind you of its history as a military stronghold but much of this area has now been modified to house attractions for tourism. Cafes small shops great gardens and courtyards abound. The former barracks now house the Museo de Las Americas and has a collection of Latin American Folk Art. Some of the religious structures spread throughout the area such as the San Juan Cathedral seem to be both Gothi San Juan Cathedral and many more historical places. And you will learn where to find other points of interest that you can return to and explore in greater detail.Some sights you'll see include San Juan Gate
From $66.00
