Full description

Meet your professional guide at Plaza Colón in San Juan and set off into the sunset on this 2-hour walking tour. The plazas are the perfect location to learn about the colonial history of Puerto Rico from your guide. From Plaza Colón, you will walk and see the Plaza de la Barandilla and Plaza de Armas. In Old San Juan, you can visit one of its most spectacular historic buildings: Antiguo Palacio de la Intendencia. It was originally built to house the treasury of the island and it is now the Department of State of Puerto Rico. At the Capilla del Santo Cristo de la Salud you can see the most popular chapel in Puerto Rico and you learn the urban legend behind this little structure built in the 18th century. You can also visit La Fortaleza-Palacio de Santa Catalina, a World Heritage Site. The tour also takes you past San Juan Cathedral, the Ballaja Barracks, Catedral Basilica Menor, Cuartel de Ballaja, and San Juan's most valuable historic site, Castillo San Felipe del Morro, before ending at Plaza de San José.

The walking tour of Old San Juan was a great introduction to the city! Jorge’s knowledge and love for the city is fantastic and his energy and enthusiasm for its history and culture make him a great ambassador for Puerto Rico and Old San Juan. So glad we made this part of our visit!

The points of interest was captivating and elevated my curiosity about about San Juan and PR in general. Time well spent. Plan to visit again before we head home.
