From the top of the Cruz there are some amazing views to be had of the city and Carribean. Well worth the trip!

Sure you will see a great view of Ponce but that's all you pay for since the computers that tell you more about the history of the place run Windows 95 with a bad monitor. I believe it is not worth it.

Being claustrophobic I didn't like the idea of it but I tried it anyways. The stairs are for emergencies only (also is 10 floors to get to the top). The view is amazing but being that high I felt little dizzy. It's really amazing to see all the way to the ocean.

Nice views and provides a good shot to photograph the Castle. The attached Japanese garden can easily be skipped.

When you go in they have a display of and old store ad house that is really charming, the building is not pretty but is interesting. I have to admit that because I'm afraid of heights I was on the observation floor for less than 3 minutes but theres not much up there except for the view that it is... More

If you go to Ponce, you have to go to the Cruzeta, as natives call it. It's right next to the Serralles castle and offers a spectacular view of Ponce and surrounding area.

If you take the drive to "El Castillo Serralles" then you should take a walk across the street to enjoy "La Cruz del Vigia". A beautiful view of the city and and the sea.

The only think to do here is to see the view of the amazing view of all Ponce. There is nothing else and the area is not so big.
