Paseo de la Princesa San Juan Reviews
Incredible views of San Juan Bay and the City Walls - Paseo de la Princesa Feb 05, 2009
"Paseo de la Princesa" or Princess' street is located in the southern tip of Old San Juan. If you took the ferry to visit this area, you'd land just walking distance from it. It connects the port to the city gate.
Paseo de la Princesa goes around the curved walls of the old city. It's lined with statues, fountains, palm trees and when we were there there was an exhibition of photos.
You can get amazing views of the Bay, nearby islands, an old Spanish prison, and at the end is the fountain that marks the street’s end. The old prison which lends the street its name, is now home to Puerto Rico’s tourism office. But maybe the most impressive are the city walls. Of all the attractions in the Old San Juan, this is one of the most visited spots because what you see changes with the time of the day. We were there at night and the night views were breath taking.
If you visit it during the day / afternoon, look for a kiosk and get a traditional fruit drink called Piragua. When we were there, it was late, but we found a really nice cafe.
I recommend to visit it. It's great and free!!!
