Kasteel
“The San Juan National Historic Site includes the Castillo San Felipe del Morro, Castillo San Cristóbal, most of the city walls, la Puerta de San Juan, and the Fort San Juan de la Cruz. El Morro, a UNESCO site and a true testament to the wonderful history of Puerto Rico, is the most recognized landmark in the island and a must-see if you are short on time during your visit and trying to choose must-see attractions. The construction of El Morro began in the 16th century with the purpose of protecting the entrance to the San Juan harbor by the Spanish conquistadores. It served as a defensive position in the New World and was witness to many battles against foreign powers and pirates. From the fort, the views of the city and the ocean are stunning. Before leaving, make sure to fly a kite on the enormous green fields outside of El Morro, take a deep breath, and relax under the magnificent blue skies — this is a treasured experience. Open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., with an entrance fee of $7 per person (children under 15 enter free). Paid admission to El Morro also gets you admission to San Cristóbal as well, just save your receipt.”

Historic Site
“For centuries, this doorway served to keep invaders out of the city. Today, you can walk through the La Puerta de San Juan to explore and experience the splendor and romance of this elegant and vibrant city. The experience through the door is more magical if you start your walk through Paseo La Princesa. If you reach it from inside the city, you’ll be greeted with a view of the San Juan Bay. From either direction, be prepared to be wowed by the magic and splendor of the city. The first thing you will notice as you approach the gate is the inscription Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. The verse comes from The Sanctus, “Holy”, a Latin hymn from Catholic liturgy. It means: Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord”

“I recommend this place because is one of the most beautiful buildings in the City. Inaugurated as a monastery in 1651. Must take a look to the interior patio from the second level and have a mojito or good wine and tapas, especially in the stairs facing Cristo street. There is also an old chapel and can see old art works all around the public areas.”

“All streets have a special charm in Old San Juan. Cristo street was the first cobblestone paved street in the americas. The cobblestones in these street are the original ones that date back to the 17th century. They are made of iron ore and have a bluish sheen. The San Juan Cathedral and a lot of shops are just around the corner from the Bonaire.”
