Found this while wandering around old San Juan. Commemorates someone living through a fall (though there are other stories so no one really knows LOL). Volunteers sell some religious items here to help raise money

Quaint little chapel located on the edge of Old Town by the water. Nice to pop in while you are in the area. Beware of all the pigeons armed and ready.
