Plaza de la Rogativa, Old San Juan Puerto Rico

Plaza La Rogativa is the most scenic plaza in San Juan Puerto Rico offering a full 180 degree views of the San Juan bay, El Yunque in the distance, Isla de Cabras, the San Juan Gate, La Fortaleza, and the historic walkways along the city walls.  The views are beautiful, but La Rogativa, one of the most beautiful sculptures in Old San Juan, takes center stage at the plaza.  The sculpture was made out of bronze by Lindsay Daen.  Rogativa means “The Procession”, which tells the legend about a Catholic Bishop and his companions who made a procession in faith holding crosses, torches, and chanting during an invasion by the British on the city in 1797.  The British thought they were Spanish Army reinforcements and gave up on the attack.  “Faith does move mountains”…
