Catedral de San Juan: When compared to the rest of America, the structure of this church is a rare example of medieval architecture during Spanish ruling in the New World.
Calle Fortaleza (Fortaleza Street): Extending eastward from the Governor’s Mansion is Calle Fortaleza, which is one of Old San Juan’s oldest and most photogenic streets.
