A favorite stop for tourists, this marvelous cathedral was built in 1592, on the same site of the previous cathedral that was destroyed by a hurricane around 1584.

Located on Calle Cristo , this gothic and neoclassical structure is situated in front of the historic Hotel El Convento in the heart of Old San Juan, and the Plazuela de Las Monjas .

Besides the cathedral's religious significance, history buffs can view the relics of Ponce de León that are preserved here in a marble crypt.
