The original cathedral in what was the city of Puerto Rico (changed to San Juan Bautista on 1521) was constructed from wood in 1521. It was destroyed by a hurricane and the current structure constructed in 1540, being reshaped in later centuries, the last time being in 1917.

Mass was with the archbishop. Lots of good songs, people clapping with the beat. Probably would have better if not for the Covid issue. They wer6live streaming for those who felt they couldn't be there. Ushers were good will taking temperature and everyone had masks plus social distancing was in place. Very safe place

absolutely beautiful Cathedral. Was able to catch a weekday Mass (12:30 I believe) while our ship was docked. Such a gift! There is a lovely gift shop available as well. Lots of history within the Cathedral itself too. And a cat. As there is no AC, the doors the streets are open. So we had our own fun viewing of a cat scurrying across the shiny floors!

Gorgeous and peaceful. It has Almost 500 years of History behind it. The stain glass windows, the tall cathedral ceilings, the paintings, the sculptures are all priceless. But due to our climatic situations ( hurricane, earthquake) it is a little deteriorated but you are able to see the beauty behind it. I think that is what makes it more interesting. A must place to see when you visit Puerto Rico.
