La Rogativa, San Juan

(4.7/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Contemplate the 1797 British invasion of San Juan at La Rogativa, which depicts local women and their bishop pleading to god to save their city during the naval blockade led by Sir Abercrombie. Built during 1971, the cluster of bronze statues, featuring three women and a bishop, stands 3.6 m (12 ft) tall and looks over San Juan Bay. During the 18th century, locals marched through the city carrying torches and bells, and singing hymns, which led British troops to believe that reinforcements had arrived. They then abandoned the city. Work out when and for how long to visit La Rogativa and other San Juan attractions using our handy San Juan itinerary builder.
