The main central portion of Old San Juan is composed of narrow blue cobblestone streets and attractive colonial buildings dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Aside from the forts and the mansion of La Fortaleza, other notable historic establishments in Old San Juan also include the Casa Rosa, the San Jose Church, Hotel El Convento, Casa Blanca, the Teatro Tapia, the former Spanish barracks which are now the Museum of Ballaja, and the municipal cemetery of Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzi. In addition to Old San Juan, the city of San Juan also houses hotels, museums, restaurants, fine beaches, and shopping centres.
