Tourism Tuesday: Paseo de la Princesa, San Juan

On today's post we'll visit the "Paseo de la Princesa", at Viejo San Juan, Pueto Rico's capital.  Since it's far away from here, I invite you to go in my very own airplane: The Furry-plane =^..^=

The Furry-plane

Paseo de la Princesa
There are soooooo many interesting places at San Juan, a town built since the Spanish occupation in Puerto Rico, centuries ago.  The Paseo de la Princesa, go around the big walls that protect part of the city. 

The walls are very wide and strong.
There's a corner with some benches and a great view.
This is The Other One's favorite bench under the tree.
And here's the tree.  Isn't it magnificent?
And this is the view when you're sitting in the bench.
Here's the "Puerta de San Juan" (San Juan's Door), where you can read an inscription in latin giving the welcome to visitors.

From the Paseo you can see the bahía (bay) the main entrance of many ships to Puerto Rico.
You can see some birds, too, fishing with their loooong beak.
And, if you stay long enough, you can also see personal sailboats...
... and the sunset.  Beautiful, isn't it?

  1. Oh yes, Old San Juan - beautiful place. Our first stop on our very first cruise because we loved wondering around in Old Town. We had never seen streets that narrow before -left a big impression. It was our first tirp out of the US, it was unique. The Fort was fun exploring also. Great place to visit & very historic.

  2. The woman went to Old San Juan when she was young. She's said it's very beautiful and wished she would've went back.
