Even though it's old it's beautiful inside. the statues are almost life size and you can feel the history behind everything that is in there. Will go again and stay longer next time.

Came here years ago. It's under renovation. There were some rumors about closing the church but is still alive and getting better

We unfortunately missed the toombs downstairs as the Cathedrial was closed on the day we happened across it. We found this place while walking between the two forts in Old San Juan. The Ponce de Leon statue is not far away.
