The cathedral is in a center of square like every Spanish colonial town, The outside of the building is well preserve, taking in consideration that the repairs and changes to the building has to be approved by the government historic preservation an this will take sometime a long period of time. Is hot but is the Caribbean. I went for... More

Lucked out to be in Ponce on Sunday and got to attend a mass. The music was beautiful and so was the cathedral. So glad I stopped.

While touring Downtown Ponce, I stopped in the Cathedral of our Lady of Guadeloupe. The church was well maintained. There were so many beautiful statues and artwork.

Beautiful and serene, old church which is a must see! Quiet place within a park area which had lion sculptures that were all painted different colors, you would have to go to see the wonderful works of art. Liked everything about this city.

The main cathedral is dedicated to our Lady of Guadalupe same as that in Mexico being it is the city's patron. On December 12 the mass of las mananitas takes place starting with a procession at 5 am from a nearby park (Lolita Tizol) about 2-3 blocks with mariachis commemorating the date of the virgin's aparition to Juan Diego.

Everytime we see an old Cathedral, my wife & I always stop by to see....we are not Catholic, but we always do stop by to see the historical site & history of the churches...and to pay respect to our Lord & Savior.

The Cathedral of our Lady Guadelupe was a nice church for the locals in the town's central district. We just walked up in there because the doors were open, and it was very well kept and maintained. We appreciated the fine Catholic statues and and images of Christ and Mother Mary. While the church was open to the public, it... More

this cathedral in Ponce is lovely. the only issue is that it is not open during the daytime like the cathedral in Old San Juan. we could not go in to see the interior until there was a service. we went in at 6:30 but could not walk around as people were getting ready for a 7pm. service.

This cathedral is not that alluring. We came here just before mass and saw locals congregating inside. The inside is not that impressive and the art work is quite simple. I wouldn't say it is a must visit while in ponce.
