San Juan Cathedral - Review

Also known as Catedral de San Juan Bautista, it is second oldest Cathedral in the Americas. Commissioned to be built in 1521 it was destroyed by a hurricane and later rebuilt and reshaped many times over to its current shape in 1917. It is believed by many to be Puerto Rico's greatest religious site. Being located tight next to the sea gate, the foreign dignitaries from the ancient times were led right to the cathedral first. The stained glass windows, the impressive facade, the overall Spanish catholic vibe to the cathedral is absolutely stunning and is a must to be experienced.

San Juan Cathedral, San Juan Reviews

  • Even after the recent hurricane this amazing cathedral doesn’t show its hundreds of years of age. Well worth a visit, and the cantor’s voice fills this beautiful architecture.

  • Church was incredible. Such history. Worth the time to see.

  • Amazing 1540 church. Oldest cathedral in this part of world. Still an active church. Tomb of Juan Ponce de Leon inside. How cool is that.

  • The Cathedras is a special place full of spirituality and the presence of God Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Excellent!

  • This place is beautiful, the stain glass windows are so vibrant. Everything from the floor to the ceiling is completely decorated with a huge amount of attention to detail. Its really not like anything else you will see in San Juan, if you are visiting old town stop here and take a look.
