If you want to learn a little about the Serralles Castle and Don Q Rum foundation this is the place. The ticket is very affordable and is worth it.

We drove up from Aibonito for the tour. Wilfredo was our guide. He was fantastic and is very knowledgeable about the house. Don't forget to stop by the tasting room!

Rum is very good for some people. A summer house for the rum barons. Wonderful view of most of Ponce. Tour was inexpensive and informative--do you know that no sugar cane is grown for rum production in PR? Molasses is shipped in from other places.

We started going to the Soul Screams 4 years ago, and haven't missed one since. Getting better and better every single time, out entire family has enjoyed the terrifying event each year. Thank you to the staff and volunteers for always putting on such an awesome haunted house! We'll see you next year!

Every year, for the last 4 years, we've been attending Soul Screams. Not only is it pretty darn scary, but the staff has made it their mission to greet our family every time we arrive. They have made us feel so welcomed and apart of the fun we have turned this event into something we can't miss. Alexis has done... More

Great house with lots of history. Do not walk there even though it looks close, as it is uphill. Excellent tour and great place to buy gifts for family.
