San Juan, Puerto Rico, Other: Narrowest House in the World

Less than 64 inches wide, it's a townhouse kind of house, wedged between others, and currently painted a cheery yellow to call attention to its narrowness.

Narrow House.

Narrowest House in the World

At 63.75 inches wide (the property, not the interior) the house at 101 Calle Tetuan is surely a candidate for "Narrowest House in the World." It faces the ancient city wall, and has a magnificent view of the harbor. It stands in close proximity to the famous Cristo Chapel, but is missed by the crowds of tourists in Old San Juan.
