Not much to see on Fortaleza street. Mostly a bunch of cheesy souvenir shops. Buildings were pretty but they get old quick. Only took an hour before we were bored.

After walking down Cristo Street, I then shopped my way down Fortaleza Street. Found almost everything I wanted and enjoyed the time spent doing it. Yes many of the shops have the same things and then you find a store with something different and what you are looking for. A must do when visiting Old San Juan.

We did most of our Shopping in Fortalezza street and Cristo street. When we visited there was a lot of road work being done on Fortalezza but you just need to make your way round it. Lots of cool art shops, jewelry places etc. Loved it

Old San Juan is a pretty place and easy to walk. We found the best shopping on Cristo and Fortaleza street with lots of neat shops.
