Qué harás

- 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.

Andy is so passionate about San Juan and the history of the city, and he takes great pride in sharing his knowledge with visitors. He shared with us so many interesting facts about the architecture and history of the city, and he showed us some absolute gems around town. He was clear and easy to understand, and he was happy to answer questions. I would absolutely recommend taking this tour with him!

I suggest people book this experience within the first few days of their arrival. A must, to gain a deeper understanding of the culture complexities and dynamism of Puerto Rico and its people. Andy was a great asset. I learned a lot. And, my husband—a licensed architect like Andy gained knowledge as well.
