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).

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.
