The walls of San Juan

One of the fascinating features of the old city of San Juan is the wall which once completely surrounded it. Spanish troops built forts in San Juan beginning in 1539 with a tower at El Morro and La Fortaleza. The majority of construction took place from the 1760's-1780's. Today it is still possible to walk between the two forts on a beautiful pathway overlooking the sea.
