They had a Christmas light show, live Christmas music, activities for the family, and to top it off a machine which blew out actual snow. The outside of Castle is very well maintained and... More

We visited Castillo Serralles with our grandkids. They loved it at first sight. Our granddaughter, age 10, immediately said that she would get married there one day! The house and gardens are beautiful. The tour was good, but not the best. The guide had very limited knowledge outside the tour script, which was disappointing. Also, many rooms in the house... More

Dream palaces for everybody. Serralles Family are also the proud owner of Rum Don Q. During the sugar cane time the richest Family in the south. Rooms, rooms and more room, with a lot of waking in and outside the Castle. Beauty has a price and here is your shoe sole. Bring comfortable shoe and enjoy the Castle, The View... More

The "castle" which is actually a mansion is located right within a residential neighborhood. If you have a GPS you will feel a lot more comfortable getting there. As you're driving up there is a ticket booth just before the entrance of the castle. KEEP A LOOK OUT. The prices are located at the window. If you're a child, senior... More

It's a great place to visit! Full of history! beautiful architecture and the furniture and decorations according to the era! The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained! As you see the castle during the guided tour, you can't help imagining yourself living there during the time original owners lived there! I loved it, it's a great place to visit... More

We appreciate your visit to our beautiful museum. It is unfortunate that we have had this situation but we already found shelters and families that adopted these dogs. More

El Castillo Serralles its a beautiful piece of Puerto Rican history. Its background history and its infrastructure are simply wonderful. Be sure to visit this gorgeous castle and its picture-perfect garden. On a date or in groups its a must visit in Ponce, PR.

Its a very long drive up the hill and once you are there they don't have a large parking. But still its a wonderful view of the city and you can see all the way to the ocean, they have a great tour that gives you detailed information about the history of the house and the Serralles family.
