The Tour was excellent, it was very educational to learn about its history and very impressive. The castle also has a butterfly farm and charming gardens.
A real surprise. We took a tour midweek, we did not attend an event, (the place is rented out for weddings, meetings, celebrations and the like). The house is fantastic and you get some history about sugar on PR. It was built in the 1930s and was never changed, but it was well maintained until Ponce bought it in about 1980. It's the best part of a museum and garden complex on a hill.
Nice way to "kill time", it's worth doing once. But I wouldn't pay to go a second time. It's a cheap day trip and nice view of the city of Ponce.
