Christo Chapel by Swazzette

Christo Chapel

The stories surrounding the history of this small chapel in Old San Juan conflict wildly except on one point: someone on horseback took a terrible spill off the cliffs at the end of Calle Cristo. Whether he lived, and the chapel was built to commemorate the miracle, or whether he died, and the chapel was to block off the street and prevent such an accident from happening again, is the part of the story that is in dispute.
Ahhh, the devout Catholics and their marvelous storytelling heritage!
