Catedral de San Juan
Located on Calle Cristo, this cathedral is the must-see attraction of the San Juan Archdiocese. It was built in 1540 and has been restored several times since. Declared an official Minor Basilica by the Vatican in Rome, the cathedral is on most walking tours in and around Old San Juan. Learn about the famous Spanish conquistador and first governor of Puerto Rico, Juan Ponce de León, whose remains are interred on the premises.
What I loved about this place is that it's location was in Old San Juan were the streets were antique because it was kept the same when the Spanish came to Puerto Rico and of course the structure of the cathedral and it's culture. The Cathedral of San Juan in Puerto Rico is one of my favorite one's since then.
This was a place that we were not looking for, but decided to check it out. This is a very beautiful, old style cathedral. Well worth stoping by to check it out when your wondering the streets of Old San Juan.
