Walked by the fountain several times as we strolled through Old San Juan and continued on to the perimeter walk around the island. Worth a stop to see the fountain.

We happened to pass by here on our way from seeing the Port door. It made for a very nice picture and history lesson. Oh and don't climb or stand on the side walls of the fountain. The guards will blow their whistles at you....More

We stopped here on our walk around the fort in old San Juan. Pretty fountain. There are vendors along the roadway/walkway leading to this with trinkets for sale plus eats/drinks. Nice fountain to see. Lovely views of the sea and bay with the big ships...More

First thing we saw after parking our car and starting our day in Old San Juan. Beautiful fountain and beautiful entranceway to starting the walk along the wall of the old city.

This fountain is huge, but very detailed. There were high school children having pictures taken in front of this fountain when we were there. This fountain is along the path for the San Juan Gate and La Muralla and cat Sanctuary.

Another beautiful spot as you travel around Old San Juan. You'll not spend a lot of time here, but you can get some great pictures.
