The Paseo de La Princesa (or Pass of the Princess) is a hot spot for tourists visiting Old San Juan in Puerto Rico. The Paseo de La Princesa was founded in 1859 and continues to thrive and survive the multiple conflicts within the area.
The Paseo de La Princesa is located specifically on the south side of the Old San Juan area in Puerto Rico near the Plaza Darcenas and the Plaza de Hostos. The Paseo de La Princesa can be accessed either by boat or by following the traditional roads that lead to the area.
The old world feel and the idle vibe of the place make the Paseo de La Princesa an ideal vacation place for tourists who frequent Puerto Rico. Tourists have often marveled at the beauty of the promenade which features the surrounding areas and artisan stalls that have risen through the years.
The Paseo de La Princesa is also a favorable spot for photographers who visit Puerto Rico. Between the fortress of the Old San Juan and the San Juan Bay are a lot of interesting images to be caught on film. The place also houses the Puerto Rico Tourism Company where artworks from Puerto Rican artists are showcased.
A recommended place to visit while in the place is the Raices Fountain which was designed by Spanish artist Luis Sanguino. Visitors can also take the Paseo El Morro which will show the Isla de Cabras and the Governor's mansion or the La Fortaleza. Finally people can also check the Hotel El Convento and the San Juan Cathedral.
The scenery and the mood for the venue changes during the evening as the Cafe La Princesa open its doors to patrons both local and foreign, boasting a variety of live acts during evenings. Thursday nights are reserved specifically for musical genres such as Blues and funk while the weekend nights of Friday and Saturday are reserved for Jazz. Sunday afternoon has the distinction of serving two different musical genres.
