San Juan’s town hall sits in front of the Plaza de Armas, right at the heard of the walled city. Its iconic facade of pillars and arches is reminiscent of the late Renaissance architecture, although the construction of the structure started around the turn of the 18th century. Over the centuries, the town hall experienced numerous additions and expansions. Its final design was completed in 1842 by architect Pedro García. Inside you can admire its regal staircase and walk around its patios. On the first floor, you’ll find the San Juan Bautista gallery, which is destined to showcase works of art made by Puerto Rican artists. On the second floor, you’ll find the Sala Capitular, where many decisions regarding the fate of San Juan—and Puerto Rico—were signed.
