#5 of 41 in Sightseeing in San Juan
Landmark Tourist Spot
Step back in time and enter the city through the historic Puerta De San Juan, the last remaining of the six gates that once served as entrances through the old town’s protective walls. Observe the thickness of the wall as you pass through the gate, and witness the beautiful, romantic town open up before you. Try a refreshing "piragua," a popular local drink, from one of the street vendors, and stroll the cobbled streets, observing beautiful architecture of this World Heritage Site.

  • Beautiful walk between the coastline and the city wall on the way to Castillo San Felipe del Morro.
  • Great anchorage where the Old Spaniards came into the city. This was the official entrance to the city, so a must see.
  • Amazing place. I'm sad I'm not there now. So beautiful there. Have fun and enjoy!
  • Historic gate to the city. There's a great little park with a fountain next to it that's the perfect spot for a rest during a long day of sightseeing.
  • Great place to visit as the historic gate to the city. The trail on the outer edge of the island is great.
