THE CERAMIC TILES OF OLD SAN JUAN

I love Old San Juan...period. The narrow, cobblestone streets remind me of Europe with a twist: the vibrant colors of the Caribbean decorate buildings that in some cases are as old as those you find in Europe. For instance, our hotel occupies a 300-year-old building.

One of my favorite things in Old San Juan is seeing the beautiful ceramic tiles that decorate everything:

They decorate the risers on apartment building staircases:






































































They indicate street addresses...








Some add extra religious tiles to their addresses...





























They tell you the street you are on...












































They tell you the name of a restaurant...


We spent two days in San Juan prior to our cruise to the southern Caribbean. This is the first of many blog posts I will write regarding our stay in San Juan and the cruise.

Thank you for visiting,
