The Forts of Old San Juan, El Morro and Fuerte San Cristobal 
Old San Juan may look, at first glance, like a few other charming cities built during the height of Spanish colonialism, but what sets it apart from Havana and Santo Domingo, for example, is the extent to which its architectural infrastructure from that era remains visible. It’s the only city that has its original colonial wall almost entirely intact, and both of its principal forts (there are other, smaller forts in and around the capital, including next to the Caribe Hilton, in Luís Muñoz Rivera Park, and Fort San Juan de la Crúz in the nearby town of Cataño) are in excellent condition, accessible to the public, and offer panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, so bring your camera. Both El Morro and Fuerte San Cristobal are run by the National Park Service, so guided tours will leave you with greater knowledge about the era, the forts’ construction, and their role in Puerto Rican history.
