  • Really cool part of Ponce's history. Worth checking out for the view alone. Its location and altitude overlooks most of the city. During the days it's nice, offering tours of inside and the medium sized (.5 acre?) Garden areas. It has a Cafe and gift shops, and Don Q tasting areas. At sunset and at night, it's pretty gorgeous. Absolutely worth the trip if your staying in Ponce.
  • I know this place is supposed to be magnificent, but I only went to an open area where my Sorority's activity was taking place and never moved from there, so I didn't get to visit the rest of this castle! Just the view of ALL the city of Ponce and surrounding areas was breathtaking, so I can just imagine how beautiful it is ( other members of the Sorority did visit the Castle). I promise to visit the next time I go to Ponce. BTW, you can schedule a tour of this wonderful place! The Serralles family is the same who have elaborated Don Q Rum, my personal favorite and my family's, and well known ALL AROUND the world. Puerto Rico is not only about Bacardi, you know.....🤷🏻‍♀️
