Fortaleza street is San Juan’s main street, its name is derived because the Palacio de Santa Catalina also known as La Fortaleza is at the end of the street where it is used as the Governor’s Mansion.
The 354 building is located at the beginning of the street which provides easy access from the three main Parking Buildings. The location is known as SOFO “South of Fortaleza” which name is given because of the concentration of fine restaurants. Across the street you will find Marmalade which is considered by many to be the best in PR and eight more just in that block.
From a safety standpoint, that location is about the safest you will find in San Juan, the police station is two blocks away and because of the Governor’s Mansion, the street is frequently patrolled.
