Convento de Santo Domingo, San Juan

(3.8/5 based on 85 reviews on the web)
Though at first glance an unassuming convent, Convento de Santo Domingo boasts historical significance thanks to its ties to General Jose de San Martin--one of the leaders of South America's struggle for independence from the Spanish empire. San Martin stayed in one of the rooms in the convent during his visit to San Juan. Today you can survey the still-intact furniture in his room, adding an extra layer of history to your visit. Take the excellent guided tour and learn about the 1944 earthquake, which destroyed much of the building but left San Martin's quarters uncompromised. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Convento de Santo Domingo and many more San Juan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's San Juan trip generator.
