Qué harás

We will be exploring the 500 year old walled city of Old San Juan, discovering secret corners and little-known spots full of charm and steeped in history, that remain unnoticed to the casual visitor. As we walk through Old San Juan’s blue cobblestoned streets, accompanied by a knowledgeable local architect, we'll be learning about how the city was built in this rocky island jutting out to the sea, observing the urban layout, constructive methods and architectural details of the Spanish colonial buildings and defensive structures. In this 2 hour stroll you'll experience historical architecture with an insider, not just as a tourist, since we will be visiting private residences and places with limited access. You'll have a chance to peer into dungeons, wonder at frescoed chapels, and climb rooftops to explore hidden towers, basque in secluded Spanish patios, and learn about the fascinating historical characters and events that shaped the city, as we delve into the mysteries of this quintessential Spanish Caribbean stronghold.

Through my work as an architect, I've come to appreciate the fine classical tradition in many of Puerto Rico’s historic buildings, in the layout of its towns, and the clever design of its old homes. The quality and rich detail of our small island’s historic architecture, which spans across 500 years of history is impressive. Concerned by how little known our architectural heritage is to outside visitors and even to the locals, in 2011, I founded a nonprofit, volunteer-based institution focused on educating the public about Puerto Rico’s spectacular historical environment.
