Plaza de Armas

Plaza de Armas Review

The Old City's original main square was once used as military drilling grounds. Bordered by Calles San Francisco, Rafael Cordero, San José, and Cruz, it has a fountain with 19th-century statues representing the four seasons as well as a bandstand and a small café. The Alcaldía commands the north side. This is one of the most popular meeting places in Old San Juan, so you're likely to encounter lots of bustle: artists sketching caricatures, pedestrians waiting in line at food carts, and hundreds of pigeons waiting for handouts.
