I'm only giving 3 stars because this is a nice place, but not a must visit location if you are on limited time. The statue depicts a religious procession led by women. However, the legend that goes along is that the British were about to invade and saw the torches of procession and thought that it was people ready to defend the city so the British retreated.

Such a lovely view from here of the bay and the defensive wall of the southern/western end of Old San Juan. Definitively include this on your (self) walking tour of Old San Juan.

Pretty statue with an interesting history and a nice view of the ocean, city walls, Puerta de San Juan, and La Fortaleza. It's not a long stop, but it's a nice scenic spot.

While the bronze Procession monument is interesting depicting historic events, I found the surrounding area and views to be the main star here.
The monument composition refers to an event during British occupation when a Catholic Bishop lead women singing and praying to God to save PR. According to a legend the British withdrew.
However, far more interesting I found terrific views of the bay just by the monument with several PR famous watchtowers and views of the Fortaleza Presidential palace and San Juan gate.

Amazing sculpture that portrays so much emotion and strength. Read the story before you go because there’s no English translation. Wether it is history or legend doesn’t matter the dramatic portrayal, the faces capture the emotion of the moment. A must see. It is a statement of great courage in the face of a situation that would appear to be hopeless.

The statue is very nice and commemorates a religious procession of days gone by. The view is beautiful, with the bay and the ocean.

Beautiful spot overlooking the bay, with easy access to roads leading to El Morro fort, a nearby gate to the Paseo along the bay, and on of the safest spots in all of the Americas. It's right at the automobile gate to the governor's mansion. Very interesting and extensive population of cats, they are taken care of by Save a Gato foundation, who neuters and vaxes and feeds the cats. They are feral, but very mild in temperament.

As it happens, we stayed for 4 nights in a Vrbo apartment right across the street from the statue - delightful space and very convenient to old San Juan.

This statue commemorates the religious procession that used to take place in the city with the priests leading the way with the cross. It is a slightly modern statue and is in a lovely spot along the city wall. There isn’t a lot of shade so take that into consideration.

The statue isn centuries old. It depicts a bishop flanked by some woman who history says that during the seizure of san juan by european powers, The woman and the bishop prayed to God to spare San juan and the miracle happened. The statue commemorates this. The scenery around is very open, cool, full of trees and with a great view of the fortaleza gov mansion and the san juan bay.

This is an small monument in Old San Juan to commemorate the British occupation of San Juan. The better part of it is the view of the San Juan bay and the Island of Puerto Rico on the back.
