This was of a church in San Juan. I was there for my honeymoon. Journalling on the left page reads: "Gothic churches are rare in the New World, but Puerto Rico has two: Porta Coeli, built in 1606 in San Germán, and San José, built in the 1530’s in Old San Juan. San José Church began life as a Dominican monastery and chapel dedicated to Saint Thomas Aquinas, and was renamed by the Jesuits who took it over in 1865. By whatever name, San José is a remarkable place. Puerto Rico’s first governor, Juan Ponce de Léon donated the wooden 16th century crucifix. The 15th century altar was brought to San Juan from Cadiz, Spain. Puerto Rico’s most distinguished artist, José Campeche, is buried here. Juan Ponce de León was originally laid to rest here in 1559 but his remains were moved to a more elegant setting in the San Juan Cathedral. His coat of arms marks a wall, however, and his statue, cast from the bronze of cannons captured from the British in 1797, stands in the middle of a little plaza in front of the church. This was the family church of Ponce de Leon’s descendants.". Journalling on the right page reads :The Plaza de San Jose lies below Plaza del Quinto Centenario. A bronze statue of Ponce de Leon graces the square; it was cast from British cannons melted down after an unsuccessful attempt to conquer the island in 1797. The plaza is skirted by a number of historic buildings. "
