"The Cathedral of San Juan Bautista is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. The cathedral is one of the oldest buildings in San Juan, and is the second oldest cathedral in the Western Hemisphere; construction began in 1521.[1] The cathedral contains the tomb of the Spanish explorer and settlement founder Juan Ponce de León."

Rudys Marie and Juan Gabriel's Wedding
Fajardo, Puerto Rico   |   June, 2008   |   Attraction

"Catedral de San Juan Bautista (Saint John the Baptist Cathedral) San Juan Cathedral was built in 1521 by the Spanish colony's first bishop, Alonso Manso. The original church on these grounds had wooden walls and a thatched roof. The thatched wooden church was blown away by a hurricane in 1526 (October 4th). A new temple, built from stone dragged by horse from inland quarries, was completed in 1529, looted in 1598, and damaged by another hurricane in 1615. The Cathedral as seen today is the result of work done in 1917, when major restorations were performed. This Cathedral is an authentic and rare New World example of medieval architecture, considered one of the most impressive religious monuments in Puerto Rico. Since 1913, the Cathedral, which features Doric columns and elliptical vaults, contains the marble tomb of the island's first governor Juan Ponce de Leon and the relic of San Pio, a Roman martyr. San Juan Cathedral still holds religious services on a regular schedule. It is also open for tours daily from 8:30am to 4pm."
