An 1882 building with a unique appearance....black and red. This is one of the iconic photo opps in Ponce. Peek inside (it's open) and you'll find some antique fire fighting apparatus and a hook and ladder truck from days gone by.

We were in the Ponce area with our kids and we made it a point to show them something different. They really enjoyed it and the other little shopped in the area.

This is a free museum. It is located in downtown Ponce. We were told it is the oldest firehouse standing. Friendly attendants. Added charm and character to the area.

This is also a must stop if you are visiting Ponce. It's a 24hr museum and you don't have to pay to see it. Has a lot of pictures and memorabilia. If you into history, recommend to visit.

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.
