We enjoyed this cathedral visit very much. The interior is well maintained and the cathedral is located on a very nice street. There is a nice breeze inside so even during warm days it is a nice place to visit.

Awe inspiring, a must see! Check the hours before you go so you can see inside. We were fortunate enough to slide in right when they were closing for the day.

So glad to see it was fully intact from Maria although you can still see some tree damage etc around it!! Definitely worth a stop and walk thru if you are in Ponce!

Learn about the culture, that arrived with the Spanish, and Portuguese. The Church and surrounds are beautiful, and will always bring memories, after your visit.

This is a very old Cathedral with lovely arquitecture and quaint side altars. No air conditioning but it does have very approachable and friendly young priests, and a strong spiritual feeling.

This huge beautiful church is well taken care of and everything shines. The stations of the cross are inside the church whereas you can kneel and pray. There are collection boxes at the holy water, candles and front alter. Jesus is in a glass case...More
