About San Juan Cathedral, San Juan
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.

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.
It is amazing to see something still around from almost 500 years ago. The detail and intricacy of the decorations is beautiful. People do not spend the time or money to do things like this anymore. If you appreciate history and architecture you will love this cathedral.
Fantastic! We happened to stop at the cathedral while they were having mass. Beautiful music, beautiful place! Inside is the tomb of Ponce de Leon and St Pius. A must see while you're in San Juan.
Pretty cool cathedral! It's very old and well conserved for its age, but the fungus really takes a toll on San Juan's buildings!
A Magnificent place. The Blessings of our GOD its where the Magic Begins...
