The Parque de Bombas (Firehouse) is a must visit during your trip to Ponce. Is a beautiful and historical place. There you can see all the firemen memorabilia including vehicles. Also they can tour historic areas in a trolley . Tickets are rather cheap (less than $ 4 per person) and are bought in the registration area Firehouse. Ponce is... More

I had passed yesterday by the Parque of Bombas in Ponce with my classmates of Hotels and Tourism, and I'd like to say that it's the best monument that you can see and see the history it was part of. The paint looks now more vivid now lately. And to say that this place it's the second most visited and... More

This is part of Ponce History , I think isnt another site as an old Bombers Station like this in whole caribbean and maybe in the states. The history and collectors items are unforgetable, if you dont go there are you visiting Ponce , hey you are losing a very good 30 minute museum. Enjoy it

Had a ton of fun in the area, this area has a ton of history, and tourist stores, and activities. I went into the local town visiting family, watched local children play in a sports tournament. First time I've eaten and drank coconuts/coconut milk from an actual coconut tree. If this is the correct spelling "Qunepa" is a popular fruit... More

Walking around the plaza was short but sweet. The church was amazing and the Armstrong house across the street was ok. The trolley that you take in front of the parque de bomba, (firehouse) was worth the $2.00. The ice cream shop across from the firehouse was inexpensive and a good treat.

Very old and beautifully taken care of Firehouse. Painted with Ponce colors , red and black, and located in the main city square, this is one of Ponce's most visited and cherished landmarks. Serves as keeper of the history of Ponce's fire department , photos and interesting equipment used many years ago.

It would be a waste to visit Ponce and not stop by the Parque de Bombas. There is not much to see inside, but the history is intense, especially to the people in Ponce.

The old firehouse in Ponce is an architectural beauty. It is a work of art as a building. This is a must see historical landmark when visiting Ponce and simply amazing to see.
