Ce vei face

- We will be exploring the 500 year old walled city of Old San Juan, discovering secret corners and little-known spots full of charm and steeped in history, that remain unnoticed to the casual visitor. We will walk through Old San Juan’s blue cobblestoned streets, accompanied by a knowledgeable local architect, learning about how the city was built in this rocky island jutting out to the sea, observing the urban layout, constructive methods and architectural details of the Spanish colonial buildings and defensive structures. In this 2 hour stroll you'll experience historical architecture with an insider, not just as a tourist, since we will be visiting private residences, convents and places with limited access. You'll have a chance to peer into underground cisterns, wonder at frescoed chapels, climb rooftops to explore hidden towers, and basque in secluded Spanish patios.

Through my work as an architect, I've come to appreciate the fine classical tradition in many of Puerto Rico’s historic buildings, in the layout of its towns, and the clever design of its old homes. The quality and rich detail of our small island’s historic architecture, which spans across 500 years of history is impressive. Concerned by how little known our architectural heritage is to outside visitors and even to the locals, in 2011, I founded a nonprofit, volunteer-based institution focused on educating the public about Puerto Rico’s spectacular historical environment.

Incredible history tour. Learned all about San Juan’s history through architecture. Normally I’m not really interested in architecture but Andy our guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history behind the buildings- it was a great tour. Learned a lot.

Take this tour!! Andy holds a wealth of knowledge about OSJ, it’s buildings, techniques, secrets, etc etc! I could have spent a week walking around this gorgeous city learning from Andy! So many nuances and details that the casual observer would fail to recognize/notice. Our remaining time in the city was even more enjoyable after the tour, as we were able to really apply our knowledge and appreciate details that we would have otherwise missed. Take this tour! (Also take Andy’s dining recommendations!!)
