This Sunday, December 6, your Park, the San Juan National Historic Site (San Juan NHS), will reach 26 years of being designated as a World Heritage Site by the Organization of the United Nations for the Education, Science and Culture (UNESCO).  This means that Castillo San Felipe del Morro, Castillo San Cristóbal,  Fort San Juan de la Cruz (El Cañuelo) and the San Juan Walls are of highly important universal cultural value as other places equally designated, such as the Pyramids in Egypt, the Great Wall of China, the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon in Arizona.  This upcoming Sunday, when celebrating the inclusion of the San Juan NHS in the World Heritage List, let us think on the importance of preserving and protecting these fortifications for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of the present and future generations of visitors that represent different places of the world.


Entrance to the fortifications on Sunday, December 6, will be free of cost in honor of this celebration.  The fortifications will be open everyday from 9:00AM to 6:00PM during the month of December, except on Christmas and New Year’s Day.  Admission to a fort is regularly $3.00 and $5.00 to both forts for adults 16 and over; children 15 and under are free.
