La Princesa in San Juan, Puerto Rico

La Princesa was a former prison. The initial city jail was built in 1837 and then expanded in 1854. It incarcerated up to 240 inmates until 1965. After an extensive renovation, the building was converted into the headquarters of Puerto Rico’s Tourism Company. This landmark also hosts a contemporary art exhibit.
