Cosa farete

- 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.

One of our favorite activities thus far in San Juan. Andy was very hospitable, personable, and informative about the histories and culture of old San Juan. Steeped in Spanish culture, Andy takes the time to teach you all about how the architecture reflects the various changes that old San Juan has endured.

This was an excellent tour and I would highly recommend it to anyone, who wants to learn the history of Old San Juan. Andy is extremely knowledgeable and informative and took us to places that we may not otherwise have discovered by ourselves. Andy is a fantastic tour guide, so there is no need to hesitate booking a tour with him. It’s well worth it!

An absolute must do in PR. Even if architecture is a foreign idea for you. Andy is so incredibly knowledgeable and deeply passionate. He knows every building in Old San Juan and can answer any question, and he loves questions! The meeting area is perfect with great places just to the south to grab a bite before the tour leaves. Please do this! Learn about the history of Old San Juan, the people, and their struggle. I appreciate PR much more after this tour. Thank you Andy!
