Pidgeon’s Park



Pidgeon's Park / El Parque de las Palomas

Right next to the Capilla del Cristo there’s a small park known as “El Parque de las Palomas” The large grey pigeon’s that abound in this park are not indigenous to Puerto Rico.  The Island’s autochthonous pigeon is the Paloma Sabanera, a smaller tan and brown pigeon that is often seen out in the country.  But by the sheer amount of pigeons in Old San Juan, and particularly at this park, it would seem like they’ve been here forever.

“El Parque de las Palomas” is an excellent spot to relax, enjoy a cold beverage, people watch and take in an excellent view of San Juan Bay.
