This a beautiful small chapel located next to the Parque de las Palomas (Pigeon Park). It is infrequently open for visitors, but is an interesting building with a very interesting backstory. Be sure to ask a local to tell you about it.

Watch out for the crazy pidgeons next to this chapel! You may stand at the gate and look inside; however, tourists are only allowed in on one day a week. We were not there whatever day that is.

This Chapel is located in the old city right next to the pigeons park. It is the oldest chapel and it says that a miracle took place here and in it's honor they built the chapel.

This is located right next to the pigeon park along the city wall. You can buy pigeon food and feed the pigeons right out front. This is the oldest chapel in the Americas and is architecturally beautiful. Be sure to bring your camera as there...More

So you should wear a hat or use an umbrella. There are concessions right in front of the chapel that sell bird food. There is a great view from this area of San Juan and a few good stores and restaurants in the area

The chapel, the pigeons and a nearby Ice cream shop made for lovely afternoon. The chapel is the oldest on the island and I believe in America.
