This is beautiful inside and out. It's only open during certain hours so make sure to check that out. They were having mass so we didn't spend a ton of time inside, but it's beautiful. Plus the square surrounding it is full of action, day and night.

It is a beautiful church, and right in the center of the square. I didn't spend a ton of time here, but worth a look.

Noticed a post where it said the church was torn down...this is not accurate. Its where it has always been and has undergone renovations. Its a beautiful church and has lots of character. Definitely worth a visit IMHO.

Was so excited to go and see this church, to get there and find the doors locked. :( It is only open twice a day...morning and noon, locked in the afternoon & evening.

This is such a lovely place. From talking to some locals they have a. Big celebration for the day of the Virgen de Guadalupe here each December 12 where the celebration begins at the break of dawn. When I visited this amazing small town, I had to stop and admire this cathedral. Simply amazing.

The four days i was in Ponce I visited the cathedral everyday. I'm not Catholic but i love saved spaces. I observed masses and weddings, and the solitude of common people taking time to petition good, calm their minds and reflect on life. The stained glass windows and carved ornate shrines will touch your soul.

Lovely cathedral. We always enjoy old churches, and this one is really interesting. Lots of side chapels.
