The Capitol of Puerto Rico, San Juan

(4.5/5 based on 130+ 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.
