It looks like any other plaza i have been before at first glance but in some spots it has statues of lions that were commissioned to local artists to be painted in the theme of Ponce. They have a detailed explanation of each one

The plaza really is something to see. A stunning cathedral is the highlight (which we attended a very nice Mass in). The painted lions all over are very, very cool. The fire station is pretty neat and it serves as the location to hop on the trolley. To top it off, the awesome, AWESOME Kings Cream is right there, serving... More

The leon exhibition was nice to take picture. You can also visited the church or fire station museums. Had a nice ice cream o ponce Quenepa (local fruit). It a good place to stop relax before you continue to drive.

The beautiful square in downtown Ponce is a safe place, many shops with great merchandise and plenty of places to eat. A must stop while in Ponce.

If you walk up and down that blocks the beauty of the city is so interesting. The lively colors of the buildings are great to see.

We spent half a day walking around the square and visited the nearby museums. We enjoyed the cuisine as well and had breakfast for the whole family for $11(six of us) in this little shop called Pizzalato.

Beautiful architecture. Best prices at Utopia for Vegigantes masks compared to San Juan. Melea coffee shop on corner of Ramada had an awesome red velvet frappacino. Don't have to pay for meters on Sundays.

During this trip the plaza had several painted lions (Ponce's Symbol) painted by professional artists. Several historical sights were open and worth the visit. On our last visit we... More
