The place gives a history of the Fire Brigade in Puerto Rico. Everything self-explanatory. Worth a passing visit.

I was there 2 summers ago. El Parque de bombas is a small but beautiful building located across from the Plaza and next to a great ice cream shop. There is also very big gift shop next door. The best time to go is in the evening.

A beautiful sight in the heart of Ponce. You can't miss this red and black building dating back to the 1800's. In the middle of the town center easy walking access to other great sites and shopping. The beautiful cathedral, city hall, trolley rides and a free museum detailing the history of the town of Ponce. Lots to see and... More

Great place to visit with interesting stuff to see, very well maintained and clean. The plus about this place is that is located near more attractions and there are gift shops and restaurants around so it's definitely worth to visit!!!

On the square near the cathedral, this is among the more photographed building in PR. Small, original and well kept it is the signature of Ponce, the second town on PR, worth a visit. The building inside is a little museum with fire trucks and some history of firefighters in PR
