A City Enclosed

For centuries San Juan, Puerto Rico was a city enclosed by a 3-mile wall.  Access in and out was only through one of five gates, each one with a specific purpose.

San Juan Gate
Puerta de San Juan – San Juan Gate

This gate was San Juan’s formal entrance for Spanish dignitaries.  By entering through this gate, they were able to walk a short distance to San Juan Cathedral to thank God for safety during their voyage.
