Old San Juan November 11, 2016 (Scroll down to glide)

As we usually do when we go to Puerto Rico to visit, we went on a "paseo" to Old San Juan with my wife, my Dad & and his wife, my step mom Luisa. As always, I love taking photos of the city.

An afternoon in Old San Juan. This street is called Galeta de Las Monjas. (click on an image to expand).
The afternoon was rainy but the clouds were fantastic.
The San Juan Cathedral is a remarkable site to visit.
This photo was taken in February 2016, and it appears the Cathedral was painted yellow, perhaps it was the very late warm afternoon sun..
El Convento Hotel is located across the street from the San Juan Bautista Cathedral. The hotel, located in a restored 17th-century convent, is just a short walk from the governor's mansion., La Fortaleza. The hotel features Spanish decor, following the colonial architecture of the city.
Hotel entrance. Staying here is in my bucket list!

La Alcaldía, is the San Juan's mayor official government office. It sits on the north side of the Plaza de Armas.

A beautiful stained glass window inside the Alcaldia.
An interior patio.

Here is a link to Google's Street View

El Callejon de la Capilla is right of Fortaleza Street. Old San Juan has numerous alleys. The cobblestones are the originals!

Built in 1625, San Jose Church is the oldest in town!

I've always remembered Iglesia San Jose to be painted white. This time, they are adding color. Not sure what the original color in 1625 was.

Cruises can dock right in Old San Juan!
La Capilla del Cristo
Spanish fortifications protected the city from pirates.

Stay Tuned... more to come!
