San Juan Gate - 5.0 out of
User Rating: / 1
The San Juan Gate was the only entrance in or out of the old fortifications prior to the destruction of San Juan's southern and eastern walls in 1897. For centuries, returning sailors used this entrace immediately after disembarking to thank their God for a safe voyage at the Cathedral of San Juan. According to legend, anyone who walks through the Gate alone without another person present in the gateway, and makes a wish, will have that wish come true.
