The Colors of Old San Juan!


One of the most architecturally rich old cities, Old San Juan is a perfectly small town easily tourable on foot. The charming cobbled stone streets that go up and down hill through out the city surrounded by vividly colored houses make Old San Juan a very bright and colorful getaway destination. The little downtown that is always buzzing with tourists and offers world famous delicacies with fresh local drinks specially Pina Colada in a pineapple shell.

WanderingΒ in the streets which had innumerable photogenic spots was the most joyful experience I had in the historical city. I found it to be a very laid back town and was amazed to see people learn and play musical instruments right by the streets. The art galleries by the main street was very interesting to look at, most of it represented the history and design of the city. The colorful doors of San Juan was the highlight of many of these galleries.

We visited the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista which is the Roman Catholic Cathedral and one of the oldest buildings of San Juan. We also explored another National Historic Site Paseo Del Moro which is a scenic relaxed walk way along the coast on one side and wall on the other which once upon a time protected the city. Overall the experience of Old San Juan is very welcoming and pleasant. I would love to return and unravel the unexplored areas of the city.

  1. Beautiful! I’m actually hoping to visit Old San Juan later this year.


  2. This place looks so nostalgic, the old and the new, the nature and the architectures all are beautifully co-existing in their pace and with peace…the choice of pictures and the mix has been artistically done by you. It is always a lovely idea to keep visiting such unexplored and historically rich place and get the mind wander and leisurely walk the streets and get absorbed in the little stories hidden in every shop and house across the streets and as you meet and interact with the locals you get to know the unknowns and precisely why you land in such less traveled places…wonderfully done.

    Loved the narration and assorted mix of images, they collective tell a tale.
