|Color abounds in Old San Juan|
Old San Juan is quite a surprise. For those of you who may have missed it, it’s the second oldest city in the Americas dating back to 1521. It’s filled with history and vividly colored buildings on blue cobblestoned streets. One of the main drags is Calle Fortaleza, at one end of which is the Governor’s Mansion, La Fortaleza. The stately building is the oldest continuously occupied Governor’s Mansion in the U.S, of which Puerto Rico has been a part since The Spanish-American War in 1898. Fortaleza Street itself is lined with Souvenir Shops, Jewelry stores and Art Galleries.
