Nice small place. Located right in the Plaza, Ponce city center. There is no fee for entrance. Worth spending a few minutes learning about Ponce's history.

Or so they say... This park is a true relic of its time and a gem as well. One of the main picture-perfect stamps where you will enjoy taking many photos

This old fire house is an interesting view into the past of the island. It is located in the main plaza, behind a cathedral and surrounded by shops.

El Parque de Bombas is a must see if you want to venture into historic Ponce. There is no cost, it is worth spending 20-30 minutes walking through and catching up on a bit of history of Ponce. It is surrounded by a plaza and some shopping areas.

El Parque de Bombas is located right in La Plaza de Ponce in Ponce PR. Keeping its age in mind it is almost intact and looks very nice. You can have a tour of the history of El Parque de Bombas during the day. Nice for the family to enjoy.

Part of Plaza las Delicias this remarkable building still standing up as a reminder of Ponce big fire where close to 100 homes burn down. Show Ponce official color Red and Black. In from of the fire house and around the Plaza you will find Free Trolley ride that will show you the city area.
