The Pro cession into the Tram Terminal is accompanied by punctured apertures and framed views towards the sea. Once inside the terminal, one is given a wide range of spaces to enjoy while waiting for the next tram.

The view from the North (ab ove) is the most common vantage point for any traveler visiting Old San Juan, as it the view from the city itself. The building was designed to service a massive density of travellers, but at the same time preventing the station from b e coming a solid wall, cutting off Old San Juan from its majestic views of the harb or from La Puntilla.
