An 18th Century hidden gem in Western Puerto Rico


"The Story of San Sebastián" is about a 2 hours walking tour where you will get to know the uplifting culture, see unique architecture and take pictures of scenic Puerto Rico. My hometown has always played an important role in Puerto Rico's history. Exploring the 18th century historical sites will tell you who are the "Pepinianos". I will be narrating how and why we have been developing a progressive town full with traditions since the 1700's.
