Palacio de las Leyes, San Juan, Puerto Rico

I think the colors and style reflect San Juan splendidly. A city that is rich in heritage and culture, the oldest established city in the United States, is wonderful to visit. The Capitol is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, justifiably, completed in 1929. Also, San Juan takes Juan Ponce de León and Cristóbal Colón completely serious. See if you can find Christopher Columbus in the above photo.
Did you know Columbus was born in the Republic of Genoa (present day Italy) and died in Valladolid, Crown of Castile (present day autonomous community of Castile and Leon). Now, he was originally interred in Valladolid, yet his son moved his remains to the monastery of La Cartuja in Sevilla. In 1542 the remains were transferred to colonial Santo Domingo (present-day Dominican Republic). In 1795, when France took over the entire island of Hispaniola, Columbus's remains were moved to Havana, Cuba. After Cuba became independent following the Spanish-American War in 1898, the remains were shipped back to España and was interred in el Cathedral de Sevilla.
He did as much traveling when he was dead as when he was alive. Ha!
