What was once a maintenance road for the city wall, is now a scenic, relaxing walk along the walls that once protected the city. Paseo del Morro is part of the San Juan National Historic Site. Starting at the San Juan Gate, while walking towards Castillo San Felipe del Morro, you can enjoy scenic views of the San Juan Bay, and in the distance you can see Isla de Cabras. Be sure to be here for a romantic sunset. The sun sets beautifully on the bay, and the walls light up beautifully – right when the sun goes down.
You can only walk one way and have to walk back towards the San Juan Gate; however, currently there’s construction to extend the walk all the way to an entrance to Castillo San Felipe del Morro. If you’re here in the hotter summer months, be sure to bring some water or stop by the piragua stand right inside the San Juan Gate for a cooling refreshment.
