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.

Amazing City an amazing cathedral there's parking as well nearby and so much to do and see and eat and the cathedral is great because obviously it's very wonderful place of faith. Definitely recommend walking by here and catching a mass or seeing the ornate decorations. You will really enjoy the detail put into this cathedral it is spectacular

I love visiting churches in different places. This one had so much symmetry, it was so beautiful. Many visitors came that day, it's nice to sit down and just take in the architecture and art.

A gorgeous cathedral, free attraction but many places to donate. Say a prayer, light a candle for a loved one, venerate the most beautiful edifice to the Virgin Mary I have ever seen, see a Saint’s actual urn with remains. Not to mention you are walking in the footsteps of history. Walk down the block to the gate of San Juan and retrace sailors path.
