Mitä teet

- 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.

Excellent if short tour of San Juan Viejo. The host clearly has extensive knowledge about the architectural history of the city. Great tour which is a sprint of the old city and leaves you desiring the marathon!!

Andy is super knowledgeable. I love the fact that he is an architect himself, which adds a lot more story into the tour.

A must do! I learned a lot about the history of the buildings of Old San Juan. It wasn't so long of a tour that my feet were killing me and there were plenty of stops. I definitely look at the city different way.

He was friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. We were able to learn a ton about how the buildings were made, when they were made, the underground tunnels and much more. The places we saw were stunning. I enjoyed learning the rich history behind Puerto Rico.
