Behind the Scenes
- For filming On Stranger Tides, a scene of a carriage arriving to the royal palace in Cádiz was filmed at Castillo San Cristobal in Old San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico. Castillo San Cristobal was one of the two great fortifications built by Spain to guard San Juan from land attack. Construction began in 1634 and was completed in 1783, making it absolutely period-correct for the film's mid-eighteenth-century setting.
- Castillo del Morro from the Pirates of the Caribbean (ride) was inspired by Castillo de San Felipe del Morro in the Old San Juan in San Juan.
- The only appearance of San Juan in the POTC world is in the video game Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned. But, since that game was canceled, it is unknown if the town's appearance in the game is canon or not.
