Built in stages from 1604 to 1789 and resembling the city hall in Madrid, Spain, this government building also houses a tourist information center and a small gallery of rotating exhibitions.

Spent a couple of hours touring the city hall(Government Center). It is located in a spot with a great view of the Caribbean sea. It is worth seeing, so you can understand the history of this island country.

About 1/2 mile from where it is on the map. Google city hall San Juan before you walk down there. Never made it as I was trying to follow the map.

We took time to meet with friends, ride the trolley and walk around the Old City. We peeked in the hall of the Alcaldia and enjoyed the outdoor patios typical of the Spanish arquitecture.

It was ok but the guides weren't that awsome. they seemed really weird. um we also had problems with getting into the Alcadia so we could not see the whole thing. but other than that it was ok.
