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.

Andy is passionate about Puerto Rico and the art that is embodied by it’s architecture. He was thoughtful to keep us in the shade & very accommodating to a blind member of our group. I love how we learned about architecture, history and the government influences throughout the tour. Andy was also a great story teller & very engaging!

Andy’s love for his city made this experience even better than I could have dreamed. He is the absolute expert in his field. So knowledgeable! What a great time! If you’re doubting the experience just do it. So much fun… now we walk around the city and point out the things we learned!

Andy was gracious and allowed I and 7 of my friends to join his tour. We had so much fun and learned so much about Old San Juan. What makes this tour absolutely special is that Andy clear has pride for his country and spends a lot of time restoring it. He is very knowledgeable about the history behind how Old San Juan was built and the architecture style. This tour was absolutely worth every penny and then some. I would recommend it. I cannot wait to come back again, and do this tour again. It’s that good.
