We visited this during the Old Town tour. Very impressive building from both front and rear. Interesting to look at from the outside anyway, lovely architectural and stonework. Unfortunately we didn’t had the chance to get inside for a quick visit as I seen so many reviews from the tourist which did that and said it absolutely amazing. A must see while in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷
Beautiful building with a lot of history behind it. Great place to visit on your next trip to Puerto Rico
