“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”

“Such a fun place to come and feed the pigeons. There are hundreds of them. There is always someone there who sells corn for one dollar, and the pigeons will go as far as sitting on your hand or arm if you let them. Kids love coming here, and again you're able to admire ancient trees, beautiful architecture and gorgeous views of the ocean. ”

“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.”
