Old San Juan Architecture
Last week, I shared photos from El Yunque National Forest from a recent trip to Puerto Rico. Back in the city, I spent quite a bit of time walking along the blue cobblestone, through the colorful historic Old San Juan architecture, the oldest settlement in Puerto Rico.
While the area is concentrated with tourists, there are plenty of walkable, narrow streets to wander through. Stop and admire the vibrant façades and architectural details.
While many of the buildings in Old San Juan are home to shops, restaurants, hotels, and museums, plenty are residential too.
