The 500-year-old cobblestone streets of Old San Juan are chockablock with colorful examples of Spanish Colonial architecture—from the trademark tile roofs and ornate balconies to the heavy wooden doors guarding secret courtyards. Calle San Francisco, lined with antiques shops and cafes, is a particularly beautiful street; for a stunning view of the sea, walk to the corner of Calle San Justo and Calle Norzagaray.
