This cross is in front of El Castillo Serralles. It have an elevator that will take to the top of the cross, once you are at the top you would be able to see to the south of Ponce and the Caribbean Sea. is a great place to take pictures.

Unfortunately we weren't able to do a tour of this place. But the outside was very well kept. And the views from this place are breathtaking.
