This by far was the nicest attraction in Ponce. The home is very well kept and the guide was very informative. I forgot his name, but he was good in answering all the questions in Spanish and English. The story of the family and the business was interesting also. All the rooms were very nice and so clean.

This museum is not free. You are not allowed to take pictures for some reason. There is some nice period furniture, but it could be better maintained. Overall could be improved, or should include some kind of tasting for adults as they do at the bacardi distellery.

I loved touring this historic mansion! I loved the architecture and decor throughout the building. During the tour you can go out on the balcony and take pictures of Ponce, it's beautiful, and at the end have a few Don Q cocktails with the friendly, energetic staff!

Is in the city of Ponce, but is better to let a taxi cap do the driving to the top of the narrow hill. Check the hour of operation it varies.Beside that, the places is a beautiful house, great gardens.and the history of the run of course.

history of the house and the family. This castle is beautiful. This is a must see during your visit in Ponce. Parking is very limited. GPS usually doesn't work well in getting you there so once you reach downtown Ponce look out for the signs or ask the locals for direccion

This is a wonderful place to visit if you are interested in architecture and history of the Don Q family. This building focuses on the Seralles family. It has wonderful views of Ponce and you can also go visit Parque De Bombas historical location in Ponce. Go enjoy the rich history of PR.
