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.

  • The building is made of beautiful marble with a scenic memorial across the road. Keep your eyes peeled for iguanas in the trees across the road.  more »

  • Beautiful historic building. House of the legislative branch of Puerto Rico. Limited parking and no eating area around.
  • Awesome biew of the capitolio's dome. A long stretch park in front where you can walk with areas to rest on with benches and balconies for viewing the awesome beach.
  • Beautiful historic building, very few parking spaces for visitors. Guided tours avaiable.
  • the service here was bad and I asked the server for chicken but he did not insert a chicken into my gullet and I didn't have any wifi
  • There is too much conflict
