Contemplate the 1797 British invasion of San Juan at Plazuela La Rogativa, which depicts local women and their bishop pleading to god to save their city during the naval blockade led by Sir Abercrombie. Built during 1971, the cluster of bronze statues, featuring three women and a bishop, stands 3.6 m (12 ft) tall and looks over San Juan Bay. During the 18th century, locals marched through the city carrying torches and bells, and singing hymns, which led British troops to believe that reinforcements had arrived. They then abandoned the city. Make Plazuela La Rogativa a part of your San Juan vacation plans using our San Juan trip app.

I love this place! Aside from the beautiful scenery and nice statue there is a hidden gem in this location that I'd like to share. See the pictures.
