Its a museum where you could find a lots of history of firefighters that fight fire that almost destroy the entire city. Its remember all those valiant and tenacius men that save lives You could also see the equipment they use to extinguish fire at those times

We visited the The Parque de Bombas or the Old Fire Station on 2/16/2015 and it was an interesting attraction. The station is located in the Plaza Square of Ponce and is definitely the most well preserved and brightest attraction in all of Downtown Ponce. The distinct red and black colors highlights the attraction very well. However, the fire station... More

A very interesting museum built in 1883, with unusual colors, sculptures, and artifacts on display, including the fire engine. It doesn't take very long to view most items. A must see if you're in Ponce right next to the square.

This is free and interesting. We tried to find the square at night. our GPS wasn't co operating either were our Google maps app on our phones. We ended up in a pretty scary neighborhood 3 blocks away. So my advise is to find this during the day. The square is small. This attraction is small to.

They have a couple of old fire trucks in display, one with about a hundred years and another even older. This was maybe the most interesting spot we saw in ponce. And I think it is worth to visit.

A small but good look at how it was done in the old days. It is free to look and walk around and upstairs has some of the original equipment that the firefighters used back then. The lions in the front are painted by hand by different artists, and they are absolutely beautiful. Short and quick on your own look... More
