Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, San Juan

4.4
Pay a visit to one of the oldest churches in the Americas, Cathedral of San Juan Bautista. Constructed in the early 16th century, the building was restored numerous times over the centuries. The small but charming building features a 19th-century Neoclassical facade, but its main claim to fame is the tomb of Juan Ponce de Leon, Spanish explorer, conquistador, and the first governor of Puerto Rico.

  • The church was amazing. How everything has stood up in time. You will have to visit to appreciate the beautiful church. I will come back to show my grand-daughters this place.  more »
  • I’ve in a boatload of cathedrals so sorry if I don’t rate this one as high as Notre Dame or the Duomo in Florence but it is nice and historic.  more »

  • 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.
