Sitio Histórico de San Juan reviews
So much history along with an amazing view. The view from this place is amazing. It sits on the coast. more »
Loved visiting this site. Was able to view from land and sea. Unfortunately due to pandemic was not able to see inside. Views from top are magical. Can’t wait to visit again when pandemic is over. more »
Impressive. Take the time to walk around and explore the property. There are tons of hidden passageways and tunnels to see. Too much history to put in a Google review... just check it out! There is a $7 entrance fee for adults (each) and kids are free. This ticket can also be used at the San Cristobal Castle across the bay for up to 48 hours. Both are spectacular. Old San Juan is beautiful with these structures being at the forefront of it's history. The walls will continue to stand for centuries to come.
Very well taken care of historical site. Large grounds for some great walking. Beautiful old cemetery at one end. There is a boardwalk path along the ocean side down the stairs. Quite and serene.
