The wall around Old San Juan is very old and has been around a few centuries. It is a must-visit, as it is free and a nice walk around the edge of the city. It leads to the old gate to the city and it...More

It is interesting to see how tall the walls are and how thick they are and how many years they have withstood the weather. The recent hurricane did not damage the wall but it took out all of the light poles and other free standing...More

Great walk along the walls. Enjoyed the history and the breeze. Cobblestone and stairs. Wear comfortable shoes.

We walked around the whole thing, nice walk great views. Often enough we pass by places without ever seeing what's really there. This one of them. I've been here to many times to count but never walked the perimeter. Nice stroll to see something different.
