27 February 12

calle Norzagaray
We went to the two historical forts in Old San Juan, San Cristóbal and del Morro. It was really interesting to learn all the history of the Spanish Armada and how they built the wall around the city and all the political stuff that went on over the years. A lot of the architecture has had to be restored, of course, but still, some of the original stuff is still there from the 1600s, which is pretty amazing to think about. We walked from one to the other, and the old buildings in between were just as interesting as the forts... to me, at least.
You can view some more pictures from this day here.
