This plaza is the perfect place to start a saturday stroll, or end the weekend eating a coconut ice cream from Kings Cream. Abundant trees, fountains and seating areas.

The square is the city center which is magical during Christmas and Carnaval when all light decorations are up. Every Sunday during the year you can hear a free concert by the municipal orchestra which starts at 7pm. They play traditional music which you can enjo seating on a bench while eating ice cream from the local stand (kings Cream)... More

Plaza Las Delicious is the main plaza in Ponce. There are fountains and various monuments in the park. In the center of this plaza is the famous Fuente de los Leones (Lions Fountain). The large, round-shaped fountain is bounded by a low, granite wall. The fountain features four lion statues. The historic firehouse building, Parque de Bombas, is located here.... More

I stayed in Ponce for several days and luckily my hotel was right across from this plaza, so I was able to explore the area quite easily. The plaza is quite lovely and atmospheric, with several interesting attractions to see. The highlight is of course the amazing, white cathedral, but there are other worthwhile sights as well. The red and... More

This place is beautiful. You should take the trolley that takes you around the historic places around the plaza. You pay for it at el parque de bombas. You should wait to buy your souvenirs at this plaza. There is a shop across from el parque de bombas that has alot of souvenirs at a decent price. I bought a... More

Plaza in the center of Ponce with stores around. Good souvenirs and ice-cream. Old firehouse museum and Cathedral. On various dates interesting cultural and crafts activities.

I have no idea who could call this area anything but depressed and boring. There are a couple of fast foods establishments, fountains with no water in them! We went on a Friday evening and there were no tourists, anywhere. If you want to play a practical joke on someone tell them to go to Ponce!!! Waste of our time,... More
