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.

Hubby and I stopped for a photo opportunity here at the fountain. The sign is in English and Spanish and tells about the fountain. Just behind and to the right of this fountain is the fort. Perfect spot for pictures.

The fountain is on Paseo de la Princesa and at the base of the city wall. It was build in 1992 to honor the many races of people that make up Puerto Rico´s history. Beautiful and safe area to take a walk at night.

This beautiful fountain is found at the end of La Princesa walk. You will find yourself watching the great sculptures that complements the fountain and at the same time watching the harbor in the background. Amazing view. Don’t miss it. Great picture spot. If you...More
