A little late of a post, but I spent this year’s 2016 Fourth of July weekend in San Juan, PR and although it was not my first time on the beautiful island, I must say that this time, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. My friend SinghInTheCity and I spent two days traversing Old San Juan, enjoying amazing food and taking some pretty cool pics. We stopped by la Calle San José and checked out the famous colonial door bearing the image of the Puerto Rican flag known as “La Puerta de la Bandera.”
We also visited the 16th-century citadel known as Castillo San Felipe del Morro, which is located on the northwestern-most point of the islet of Old San Juan. According to Wikipedia, “Castillo San Felipe del Morro is named in honor of King Philip II of Spain. The fortification, also referred to as el Morro or ‘the promontory,’ was designed to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay, and defend the Spanish colonial port city of San Juan from seaborne enemies.”
