“Old San Juan's venerated cathedral is Puerto Rico's grandest religious building, and one of its most important. In fact, San Juan Bautista is the seat of the Archdiocese of Puerto Rico. It's also the second oldest church in the Western Hemisphere, and the oldest church on U.S. soil. The history of the church dates to 1521 and the earliest beginnings of the Spanish colonization of the island. The building you see today wasn't the original church, which was demolished by a hurricane. The current structure dates to 1540.”

“This place is certainly worth the 5-block walk from the 'Blue Room' as the pizza is delicious! And it's located in a beautiful, well-preserved Spanish building. Be sure to ask for a table in the second floor: you'll be amazed by the brick walls and tall ceilings. But, again, the food is what makes it all worth it. ”
