Ponce's Center

Ponce's city center is built around a gorgeous plaza, known as La Plaza Delicias (the Plaza of Delights). With the Cathedral, some fountains, statues, and the famous Fire Station Museum known as El Parque de Bombas, it is a must-see. If you see nothing else in Ponce, see this city square.

Nearby Attractions

Near Ponce are a number of historical and scenic attractions. Perhaps the best known is the Castillo Serralles. Once the home of Ponce's pre-eminent family, this is now a popular tourist place. Another favorite is the beach. Here, the hot Caribbean sun keeps the water warm year-round. Bring sunblock!
