A focal point in Ponce is the centennial Plaza Las Delicias. There's The Cathedral , El Parque De Bombas, Two hotels and the beautiful fountains. Is a must stop in your visit.

Lovely little plaza to stroll, with shaded benches to rest on. Make sure to stop at nearby Lola Eclectic Cuisine for a delicious meal. Ask for server Nancy to recommend her favorite dishes.

This plaza is beautiful to see. You have the view of the church and it close to the firefighter museum. The plaza is clean and has dove around the plaza which you can feed.

Great place to enjoy the beautiful architecture of this quaint town. One can just sit, watch people , relax, enjoy ice cream. There are 2 souvenir shops close by. There is a BK and Church's chicken when you get hungry. A must visit.

Simply awesome. Kings cream has the best ice cream in the world. On one of the street corners there's a stand that sell baked potatoes. Omg, the best thing you'll ever eat.
