Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This wall is old, construction beginning in 1634. The history of this wall is the history of Viejo San Juan. However, it appears that wall is not being maintained and is starting to erode. I realize that the wall isn't used for a defensive position, but the historical significance of it should command more efforts to keep it in tact. It's not a thing to see since it surrounds the entire city, but the shear size is still quite impressive, especially when you realize just how long ago it was constructed.

San Juan counts in one of the best protected cities from the colonial era. Spaniards built two fortresses to protect it both, from land and sea. In between them also a long and tall wall was built.
This wall stretches from the Paseo de Princesa, starting close to the cruise port and winding its way all along the old town to the El Morro fort. It's very pleasant to walk it and you pass several attractions like the Rogativa, San Juan Gate,....with spectacular views of the bay and Catano village across it.

Went in December and parts of the pathway were closed off as it was being worked on. Disappointing, but at the same time I am glad that they are trying to preserve the wall. What areas That can be seen and walked are interesting....plus very photogenetic, I tried to download images but something is wrong with the TripAdvisor site.

This iconic wall was originally built by the Spanish to protect San Juan from attack; even though Puerto Rico is no longer a Spanish colony, the wall still stands and is a very nice walk. You can walk from here to La Puerta de San Juan, to the water, and to the Castillo San Felipe del Morro. You can get some beautiful views of the area from here, especially at sunrise/sunset.

Getting to see these wall from below is a very unique experience as most walled cities I have visited are so tightly packed that you can only climb them and look down on the city. The walk way is right down by the water and lets you see the city from a different perspective. Would probably be a great place to watch the sunrise.

The walkway that leads along the water to the fort was blocked off and said under construction. However, we did enjoy seeing the local art, got a snow cone, watched some locals dance. Nice atmosphere. Very pretty Sunday evening in the park area.

This wall was built to protect Old San Juan. There is a nice walk way along the wall that leads to the La Puerta de San Juan (the gate). Definitely, a scenic walk (maybe a romantic spot to watch a sunset over the water).

This is a wide paved walk, also known as Paseo del Morro, along the rocky shore, with expansive views across Bahia de San Juan on one side and the old stone palisades rising above you on the other side. There are useful interpretive signs along the way with some history.
We started our walk from the southwest corner of Viejo San Juan at Parque las Polomas, up past Plaza de la Catedral, and then through the Red Gates - La Puerta de San Juan - to get on to La Muralla. We walked along until it ends at the back entrance of Castillo del Morro. You have access to a lot of the castle grounds without needed to pass the pay gate.
This is also the Save the Cats zone. There are A LOT of cats lolling about Viejo San Juan, and La Muralla seems to be the epicenter, where there are many feeding stations.

Very impressive and unusual. Lots of interesting things to see and do along the wall. Please see pictures below of a playground and beautiful walk found right by this wall, near the harbor.

This huge wall surrounds the whole city. The wall is hundreds of years old. It is also great to take in the panoramas from the top and from the bottom of the walls.
