Viejo San Juan

It’s the original section, still exhibiting traces of a 500-year history. Some photos.

Streets in the old town remind you of some places you might see in Europe.


Cristo street is closed to auto traffic and supports a thriving open-air café business.


A musician, for tips, serenades customers.


At the lower end is historic Capilla del Santo Cristo de la Salud (Cristo Chapel).


In many places original paving carries motorized and foot traffic.


Not all is viejo in the old town.


Colorful characters abound.


About John Blanton

I'm a retired engineer living in San Antonio, Texas. I have served in the Navy, raced motorcycles, taken scads of photos and am usually a nice guy. I have political and religious opinions, and these opinions tend to be driven by an excess of observed stupidity. Gross stupidity is the supposed target of many of my posts.
