OLD SAN JUAN CATHOLIC HERITAGE
(La ruta de San Juan Bautista)
Created in 2001, the Catholic Heritage of San Juan
historical walk is a journey through time exploring the
role of the Catholic religion during the colonization
period based on the chronicles written by Pané and
Bartolomé de Las Casas. More than a simple walk
through the old city, you will also learn about the
architecture of the temples, history behind the
walls, and how the Spaniards imposed their beliefs
within the Taínos and African slaves.
We have several routes for this walk, depending
selected day, we will suggest the best option*. If you
are planning to book this walk during the Holy Week,
please make your reservations at least two or three
months ahead of time. Some churches are still
closed, narration will be included as part of the route.
