This square in Ponce is worth visiting. The fountain is very pretty. There is a great selection of shops and cafes around the square. The day we visited there was a market selling many handmade items.

Took a walking tour around this very historical capital city. Lots to learn about including key moments in history. And learnt about the lives of the famous citizens. Sugar and rum production grew the economy. Well worth visiting.

By nightfall, Ponce's main square is peaceful on week days and very beautiful as it lights up in the dark. You'll enjoy the fountains, walking around the cathedral and looking into the "Parque de Bombas", Ponce's unique 19th century firehouse.
