A must visit when you visit Ponce. Located on El Vigía overlooking the city is one of the best views you can have! The tour is great where you can learn the history of this family castle and the city.

The castle was the summer house to the Serralles family. The view is spectacular. Can be rented for weddings and social functions. A bit tricky to get there.
