I love this street. It is so special and it has the Chapel of the Christ which is so peaceful and the park of Pigeons. It is great.

My wife and I along with her brother Michael and sister-in-law Barbara visited Old San Juan last week and once again this old, historic city amazed me. The buildings, streets, and atmosphere all make you feel so welcome and like you are in a typical Spanish or Portuguese city. There are so many shops, restaurants, bars, museums, and historical attractions... More

We walked through so much of Old San Jaun without a definite plan, and we had zig zagged on and off Calle del Cristo many times, especially one great swerve to Don Collins cigar shop ( a MUST stop and see). The most memorable part of this street, to me, were the final 2 blocks, which start, at the top... More

The street goes through town; passed the El Convento, the Cathedral and the chapel is at the end of the street. Be sure to notice the blue cobblestones in the street.

While out for a nice walk, stop on by this street. It has a cute church at the end of it, and a pigeon park next to it. Also, there is a bar that serves you a sangria when you get a pedicure! Little shops and restaurants on this street.

Coach store down the block. Cool church, plenty of bars and restaurants in a cool location. Must go just to hang out. Real old world feel and the people are nice.
