Old San Juan ('Viejo San Juan') is one of the oldest settlements in the Americas, it's origins dating back to the 16th century, and it is the historic colonial section of San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is located on a small island connected to the mainland of Puerto Rico by bridges and a causeway. The nearest beach ('Escambron') is just a 30-minute walk, or 5 minutes away by taxi, public bus or car; twice that for the PR Convention Center. OSJ is mostly enjoyed by foot, but there is a free trolley and some public parking garages.
The district is characterized by numerous public plazas and churches, including the Cathedral of San Juan (1540).
With its abundance of shops, historic places, museums, open air cafés, restaurants, clubs, gracious homes, tree-shaded plazas, and its old beauty and architectural peculiarity, OSJ is the main attraction in PR for international and local tourism. The centuries-old Morro Fort complex is just a few blocks away.
