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.

This is the second time I’ve done this tour with Andy, and it was exceptional. There is so much to know about this amazing place, and I learned more about the history and architecture of Old San Juan. Andy’s deep knowledge of and passion for the culture, community, and history of San Juan and Puerto Rico make this one of a kind. I definitely recommend doing this tour with Andy.

GREAT tour! Andy was super informative and helpful. He’s an excellent resource for tips for getting around the city and the best places for eating, drinking and having fun! I learned so much about Old San Juan and I’ll never look at this place the same way again. Well worth it!

This is an architectural tour where Andy will explain the significance of different building styles and iconography. It’s interesting and you see a lot of Old San Juan, but you don’t visit El Morro if that’s what you’re looking for. Andy is great and passionate about his country and history! He’s very nice, provided helpful travel tips and genuinely wanted people to enjoy themselves.
