Garitas
San Juan (PR) is the oldest city under the U.S. flag. It was founded in 1511 by Juan Ponce de León, and built as a military stronghold. In it, Garitas (little shelters) were the outposts of protection for the island against attacks by sea and by land. Today, Garitas are a landmark of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

The city of San Juan is a place where you can visit 500 years of history in one day. Its forts and city walls are among the best preserved in the hemisphere. The area covers 7 square blocks of narrow cobblestone paved streets, lined with centuries old colonial homes with distinct balconies and courtyards; fortresses, and promenade. The area is dotted with antique homes, churches, and plazas that represent the Caribbean's most priceless architecture and culture.
