San Juan, today the capital City of Caribbean Island of Puerto Rico is one of the oldest cities in the New World. The walled city of Old San Juan is a historic precinct of narrow cobblestone streets, public squares, pastel-colored colonial buildings and even two fortresses at either end of the city. It is located at the western end of San Juan Island, surrounded by sea on three sides and laden with the atmosphere of a bygone era.
