Waiting for the Miracle

The story goes that this pintsized historic chapel (Capilla del Cristo), built along the Old San Juan city wall adjacent to Parque de las Palomas, marks the site of a miracle: divine intervention to save the life of a horseman who plunged off the cliffs here during a race in 1753.

Many visitors to the chapel come to pray for their own heavenly assistance, but even if you aren't in present need of a miracle, Capilla del Cristo's worth a stop for its beautifully preserved architecture and view of Old San Juan.
