Capilla del Cristo Chapel
Parque de las Palomas
San Juan, 00901
Located at Parque de las Palomas (Pigeon's Park ) on Calle Cristo, this is a beautiful and unique chapel set at the foot of steep cliffs. This small chapel was built in the 1700's. According to a legend the builder was a man whose life was saved when he and his runaway horse suddenly stopped short before plunging over the cliffs. In an act of gratitude to God for saving his life, this saved soul built the chapel on the exact spot where his life was spared. Admission is free.
Shrine is beautiful and made of silver
