The cathedral is walking distance from the hotels in town. The architecture is beautiful! You can take a look inside and admire the art and the building itself.

This cathedral is located in the main square of Ponce. It's an imposing structure with nice exterior architectural features. But step inside! The interior is phenomenal! One of the most beautiful interiors I have seen, although certainly not the largest or most ornate. If you're visiting Ponce take time to see this exceptional cathedral.

I can really only comment on the outside. The church is beautiful and I'm sure it is just as beautiful inside as it is in the outside. Next time I go I will find out if they do tours.

You have to experience this visit. One of the oldest cathedrals in the Caribbean and home to artifacts you never imagined; resting place to some of the most prominent catholic officials in Puerto Rico's history.

I lived in Ponce for 14 years, from my birth until we moved state side. That was almost 50 years ago and on my recent trip I took the time on a Sunday morning to go to Plaza Las Delicias and mentally transport myself to 50 years earlier. Not to bother with a lot of sentiment, but the plaza is... More
