The Statue is right up the hill from the San Juan Gate. It provides a nice photo opportunity of the statue and a few scenic views. Worth adding to your walking tour.

Not a place where you'll spend much time, but it's yet another stop on the trip around Old San Juan. Be sure to stop by and get a few pictures! Every old building and every statue in the city helps tell the story of its history.

Check this out as you also see the gate. You can then go for a walk along the path outside the old city walls and enjoy views of the sea.

The statue of La Rogativa tells the story of how the catholic bishop of the time created a procession of folks from the parish carrying flags and crosses and praying and marching because ... the British were coming.

This is one of my favorite sculptures located in Old San Juan. I go out of my way to pass it and rest in the shade on the wall and admire.
