  • the place is very central, ideal location to make several visits, very interesting of course, to other beautiful places of San Juan. It is very significant for San Juanians this museum showing photos of the tragic earthquake of January 1944. Thereyou learn that this province, marked by earthquakes, always overlaps with these natural disasters, so much so that today almost 90% of the homes throughout the province are anti-seismic, which gives security to tourists who visit it. Highly recommended
