Our hotel was located on this street, lots of restaurants, the beautiful old san juan cathedral, just across from El Convento hotel and Nuns Plaza a little park with benches and large shady trees.Going up hill on this street a bit hard going but definitely worth it and easy going down,this is one of the busy streets in san juan.

The Street ends with the Capilla de Cristo (Chapel) and Pigeon Park. There are outdoor restaurant seating right before the Chapel that gives a great range of food choices. Great stop to eat.

Beautiful, gorgeous, quintessential Old San Juan. Cats everywhere which are very fun to spot, cobblestone streets, lovely views of the Cathedral, El Convento, the city wall, and huge trees. Bats and cocqui at night. One of the loveliest spots I've ever been to!

This was one of my favorite areas in San Juan. I love the many restaurants and shopping places. I walked alone, at different times, and I felt completely safe.

Many shops in this area. A scenic spot that is worth a walk through while seeing many of the historic sights in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Cathedral is nearby, and many interesting buildings.

Beautiful cobblestone street for a walk. We visit Calle del Cristo every time we're in San Juan. Great shopping, beautiful houses and the cathedral is lovely.

I love this street. It is so special and it has the Chapel of the Christ which is so peaceful and the park of Pigeons. It is great.
