ماذا ستفعل

- 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.

This was a really nice tour! We saw so many beautiful areas and buildings in the city while learning a lot of interesting history as well. Andy is a great host! He is friendly, funny, and full of knowledge, and gave us time for some quick breaks from the heat during the tour. Well worth it, and glad this was the first activity we did in Old San Juan.

Such a wonderful, thought provoking tour of Old San Juan. We were in a small group of 3, so we were able to visit places that most groups would not be able to fit in. The perfect amount of the building’s historicity and the sociopolitical affairs of PR.

This was a cute little tour. Andy was so friendly and very knowledgeable. The group I was with asked a million questions so that slowed us down a bit and probably meant we had to speed past some of the sites but still a great experience. Would recommend.

The trip was interesting and I chose this one to experience more hidden gems than the typical tourist experience. At first, it was extremely interesting. However, some parts did not seem as interesting or relevant. Overall, the guest was kind and relayed a level of expertise that is very difficult to find.
