Ponce, Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico's "Second City" is first-rate when it comes to architecture, culture, and character. With a decidedly agrarian history compared to San Juan, Ponce embodies a different time in Puerto Rico history. Island agriculture boomed in the 19th century, driving the city to the forefront of coffee and sugar cane production. Because of this, Ponce is full of elegant colonial mansions, surrounded by sprawling plantations, and well-known for its delicious seafood, coffee, and rum.

Serralles Castle

Sitting on the hill over the city, Castillo Serralles stands as a beacon to Puerto Rican rum production. The Serralles family made their wealth growing sugar cane and turning it into the staple Caribbean spirit. Today, their gorgeous mansion is an architectural museum of antiques, intricately handmade furniture, and lush tropical gardens, replete with orchids.

Ponce - An Architectural Gem

Internationally renowned for its uniquely preserved namesake architectural style, Ponce Creole, the city is full of marvelous 19th century buildings for visitors to behold. Many are near the city center, such as the beloved theater, Teatro La Perla. Building enthusiasts should be sure to visit the Museum of Puerto Rican Architecture at Casa Wiechers-Villaronga.
