“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”
