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.

Beautiful! Just mesmerizing! A + is that people/visitors are respectful...and keep it pretty quiet. Great for a nice walkthrough and some pictures. The little shop on the side of the Cathedral has little tokens to take with you and the staff there were extremely friendly!

Incredible historic Cathedral. View holy relics, stand in awe of the architecture and stained glass, and if you have the chance, stay for a service, they have incredible singers and peaceful words. 🙏🏽 Thank you.
