  • To experience Fortaleza Street, you should walk it during the day and then see it lit up at night in all its splendor  more »
  • Beautiful street with Caribbean flair. Just walk through or shopping or just enjoying a three Puerto Rican coffee. I like it.

  • Took advantage of inexpensive and quick guided tour. Fun to simply walk in to the Territorial Governor's Mansion. Learned a few good facts as friendly guide showed us around the grounds accompanied by security.
