“Honeymoon vacations”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Beautiful street with two of the most important places in Old SJ: Parque de las Palomas ( Pidgeon Park) and Cristo Chapel, an old and historic structure that remains the culture of PR. Review from a local :)

“One of the most beautiful streets in the Old City”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

Calle del Cristo, with the chapel right at the end of the street on top of the city walls, is one of the most cobblestoned streets beautiful in the Old City. It is filled with nice shops and restaurants and plenty of historic places, including San Juan Cathedral and El Convento Hotel, to visit.

“Beautiful and instructive”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

I liked the view, the construction. It could have been a little better with a map or directions on site not to use stairs too many times for nothing. A must nevertheless.

“A Street That Runs Through Old San Juan”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

This street has everything or it intersects with other streets that have other attractions.

The street starts at the Atlantic Ocean and continues to practically the harbor. At the top of the street there is the National Gallery and Museum. A short distance along the ocean street is El Morro in one direction and San Cristobol Fort in the other direction. Both attractions are not to be missed.

As you travel down the street there are many restaurants just off the street on the side streets that intersect with Calle Cristo.

Along the way there is the El Convento Hotel-superb-the Cathederal of San Juan, a small plaza, and many boutiques.

The street continues and intersects with Calle Fortaleza. This is one of the centers of activity in Old San Juan. There are dozens of good restaurants and shops.

Calle Crist finally ends at the gate and a park on one side of the gate and a bar on the other side of the street.

This street-Calle Cristo-is a nice street to take a stroll or do some buying and eating.

“Pretty Street”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

This is a pretty street that winds past El Covento and the Cathedral. The shopping seems to be primarily factory outlet stores- coach, crocs, etc., but that was ok. We visited and bought a few things.

If you keep going down the street, all the way to the end, there is a little bar/spa place that we loved. You can order cocktails in the front and get spa services in the back- manis, pedis, massages, etc. It's a great little place. Also suggest visiting pigeon park (right across from the spa). It's kind of gross, but interesting, and worth seeing. :-)
