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.

I had a wonderful time here. The workers here were extremely humble. They allowed my fiance and I to light a candle for our grandmother's that have gone with the Lord. I felt right at home and I thank the staff here for allowing me to bring a piece of our grandmother's home. The atmosphere brought me back to my church when I was a child. Thank you again for having us.

Stunning collection of paintings, sculptures, crosses, altars, stained glass windows, and an assortment of other items inside a beautiful, historic Catholic church. There's something special about walking inside a 500 year old building, and it's even more profound when it's a church. We only spent about 45 minutes here, as we were short on time, but we could have easily spent 2 hours here in total awe of such a amazing place.
