Must see. Tickets are required but it's worth it. Arrive early so you can get one of the first tours. Beautiful gardens. Couldn't take pics inside the house because is not permitted. So, you better visit then if you are in town.

If you want to learn a little about the Serralles Castle and Don Q Rum foundation this is the place. The ticket is very affordable and is worth it.

We drove up from Aibonito for the tour. Wilfredo was our guide. He was fantastic and is very knowledgeable about the house. Don't forget to stop by the tasting room!

Rum is very good for some people. A summer house for the rum barons. Wonderful view of most of Ponce. Tour was inexpensive and informative--do you know that no sugar cane is grown for rum production in PR? Molasses is shipped in from other places....More
