A part of the city filled with history, Old San Juan is a reminder of the rich influence of the Spanish culture that has inhabited it from a long time. The city is characterized by its narrow, blue cobblestone streets and flat-roofed brick and stone buildings dating back to the 16th and 17th century when Puerto Rico was a Spanish possession. The Casa Blanca was the first fortified structure built in 1521 which once housed Ponce de Leon. It is now a historical museum.

Other than that there are more than 400 buildings from the time which have been carefully renovated and maintained. Some of them are, Castillo de San Felipe del Morro, San Jose Church, Ballaja Barracks, La Fortaleza, San Juan Cathedral, San Juan Gate, and La Casa del Libro. A free tram service exists which is equipped for disabled people that connects different part of Old Juan. With a lot of shops, markets and restaurants Old San Juan comes alive with its colours and friendly atmosphere.
