The Capitol of Puerto Rico, San Juan

(4.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Delve into the rich history of Puerto Rico at The Capitol of Puerto Rico, otherwise known as "The Palace of Laws." Take a guided tour around the stately 1929 structure adorned in Georgian pink marble, and see the mosaic murals depicting the historic events of the area. The location affords great views of the ocean and neighboring fort from the front door. Note that you'll need to climb quite a few stairs to the entrance and there is no disabled access. Reserve your guided tour in advance. See The Capitol of Puerto Rico and all San Juan has to offer by arranging your trip with our San Juan itinerary planner.

  • Great architecture. Picture spot. The building has marble and a lovely dome. It is well taken care of and is a landmark worth viewing.  more »
  • The visitor can enjoy from their vehicle, the view of the House from the laws of Puerto Rico, is a very nice building.

  • Beautiful building with over 20 different kinds of marble. The rotunda ceiling is rem iniscent of the Vatican (without the religious theme). Should be included in any tour of Old San Juan.  more »
