The police and firemen were very nice to a strange that did not know how to speak Spanish. It was awesome to see and to hear the history of this firehouse.

Visited with my three kids (8, 6, 5). They loved it and got to ring the fire truck's bell! It's free and the visit can take anywhere from 5-20 minutes.

Nothing exciting just an old firehouse with old fire engines. Part of history. Nice little park area surrounding and stores. Also some street vendors selling various things.

I believe I heard this is the most photographed building in Puerto Rico. It does appear unique and it is right in the main square so why wouldn't you check it out? You will remember it.

A semi-open air former fire station. A few things to see inside, fortunately it is free to visit or else it wouldn't be worth it. Not much else to see in the old town center but one might as will take a peek inside.

They have a trolley running withing certain hours of the day. But service is very limited, so you should relly on your feets to walk around the center, and your car to go to the different atractions out of the center.
