This was by far our most favorite walk in Old San Juan. The breeze from the sea, the views of the old high walls, the birds, and the tropical vegetation made it really memorable. I recommend a morning walk to avoid the crowds.

Enjoyed following the city walls along the water on the way to the fort. They are massive and striking with the water in the background.

Enjoy as part of walking tour in Old San Juan. Close to San Juan Gate. We scratched our name in the wall. Literally means the mural but no mural. Just some old graffitti and bullet and cannon ball holes. Still enjoyable if you are interested in history

How could you visit Old San Juan and not walk by this area where hundreds of years ago, the Princes of Spain used to take a walk every evening during sunset!!!

My wife and I recently visited Old San Juan for the third time and her brother Michael and sister-in-law Barbara joined us on this trip for their first visit to the island of Puerto Rico. No matter where you go in Old San Juan there is something historic to see and visit. La Muralla is just one of many places... More

Walking along the water with the wall on the other side of you makes for a beautiful scenery. This historic site was started in the early 1500′s and it is almost 20 feet thick in places and up to 60 feet tall in some places. It was constantly being extended as the city grew and was finally completed in 1782.... More

These ancient walls were the prime defense of the spanish forts typical of San Juan. Awesome, but once you see the areas near the Puerta de San Juan you may consider seen all. However, that being said, all the forts are well worth visiting.

La muralla, "The Wall" is part of the historic fortress that protected Old San Juan from Pirate and other countries wanting to attack Puerto Rico due to its strategic location in the Caribbean. The wall could be a romantic wall along the sidewalk. take a walk at night on the wall, the Atlantic ocean and under a warm moon rekindling... More
