Alcaldia "Old San Juan City Hall"

During a store visit I had a chance to drive through the Old San Juan district of San Juan PR.
This is the Alcaldia (San Juan's City Hall). The building was constructed in 1602 and completed in 1789. In the 1840's the building was heavily remodeled providing its present day facade intended by its builders to be an exact replica of Madrid's. The building has a tourism information center and a small gallery for periodic exhibitions.
