Cathedral de San Juan
A favorite stop for tourists, this marvelous cathedral was built in 1592, on the same site of the previous cathedral that was destroyed by a hurricane around 1584. Located on Calle Cristo, this gothic and neoclassical structure is situated in front of the historic Hotel El Convento in the heart of Old San Juan, and the Plazuela de Las Monjas. Besides the cathedral's religious significance, history buffs can view the relics of Ponce de León that are preserved here in a marble crypt.
If you enjoy history or architecture, then you will probably enjoy visiting this cathedral. It's beautiful, and a wonderful example of the colonial architecture that fills Viejo San Juan. It's not somewhere that I could spend hours exploring, but definitely worth at least a short visit.
The cathedral is beautiful. If you are from an area without Spanish influence I would highly recommend it. My friend and I were just walking around when we happened upon the cathedral. At the same time we looking around there were several tour groups and a wedding. Worth the walk.
It is quite an awesome experience to enter this historic cathedral with its old world Spanish architecture and atmosphere. Met a charming local couple in their 80s celebrating their 50th anniversary with their entire family attending the blessing by the priest; How lovely and how friendly they were to us. This is a place I go every February and have videos and photographs of the most elegant weddings immaginable!! This is truly heaven on earth....if you are looking...go there!!
i hated it. It wasnt that pretty anyway they made it sound better than it was. it was etremely boring i recomend u NEVER go there. i go to places all over the world and that was by far the worst place i have ever been to, just looking out for you. Have A Good Vacation - Ana May Lieona age 39
