Parada 25 - Calle San Jorge
This stop covers an area that was undeveloped during the early years of the trolley, so it extends quite a way down Ponce de Leon from Calle San Jorge to Calle Jordan just before Sagrado Corazon University.
Although is has several very grand buildings along Ponce de Leon, it also features a large stretch of Ave Fernandez Juncos with abandoned buildings which had been set aside for for luxury condo developments that never got past the planning process. While this leaves a very mixed landscape - it has become the best hunting ground for street art and graffiti in Santurce.
Look past the elegant condos, mansions, churches and masonic temple on Ponce de Leon and explore the side streets that lead to Fernandez Juncos for a sometimes annoying and often fabulous array of street art.
There are very few businesses in this area, but continue onto stop 26 for several good restaurants.
