THE RED DOOR LANDMARK

This is a picture etched in my mind and my heart.

Many a’times did I walked through it.

Imagine all the history … go back in time!

Many, many people have gone through that door.

In the past, one was able to drive the car through old San Juan, drive through the door and go out to the main streets.

It has now become a beautiful promenade for folks to stroll and enjoy their visit.

It takes me back!

“The red door, where dignitaries were permitted to enter Spanish San Juan’s walls”

The red-painted, heavy, wooden doors of the San Juan Gate, the only surviving original town gate. Built in 1520, this gate provided access to the wealthy and the Spanish dignitaries disembarking from ships.

Less prominent visitors used one of the other five gates that are no longer in existence.
