Chapel of Christ the Savior (Capilla de Cristo), San Juan
(4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Head to Chapel of Christ the Savior (Capilla de Cristo), a quaint chapel with a rich history. According to legend, the chapel was built to celebrate the miracle survival of a racer who leapt over the edge of the city wall, after he was unable to stop his horse. The exterior of the 18th-century holy building features little more than an exposed bell tower. Inside, find a shining gold and silver altar surrounded by paintings from famous Puerto Rican artist Jose Campeche, all enveloped by white walls.
