Year Established: 1929
Description:

Located in the Puerta de Tierra sector of Old San Juan, if you follow Muñoz Rivera Avenue to the east of San Cristóbal you’ll reach El Capitolio. Inaugurated in February 11th, 1929, the idea for a capitol building of Puerto Rico had been gestating since 1907. It was then that Luis Muñoz Rivera, a strong proponent of administrative autonomy for the island and former Resident Commissioner, began campaigning for such a building. El Capitolio of Puerto Rico is home to the island’s Senate and House of Representatives. Inside the building is the original document for the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, a powerful symbol of self-government.
