Capilla del Cristo (Cristo Chapel) is located at the end of Cristo Street next to the Parque de las Palomas in the Old San Juan section of San Juan, Puerto Rico. The chapel, which is now a Puerto Rican landmark, was originally built in 1753 and is a fairly small but quaint and historic chapel. The entrance has a large wrought-iron gate and a small single church bell adorns to rooftop.
