A focal point in Ponce is the centennial Plaza Las Delicias. There's The Cathedral , El Parque De Bombas, Two hotels and the beautiful fountains. Is a must stop in your visit.

We went during the day and it was so hot. No one was around so we just walked the plaza quickly and took in the sights. The fountain was not on and there were homeless? on the benches.

Lovely little plaza to stroll, with shaded benches to rest on. Make sure to stop at nearby Lola Eclectic Cuisine for a delicious meal. Ask for server Nancy to recommend her favorite dishes.

This plaza is beautiful to see. You have the view of the church and it close to the firefighter museum. The plaza is clean and has dove around the plaza which you can feed.
