Drawing of Puerto Rico by Elena Harley

 

Historic Ponce, the 'Pearl of the South'. The Art Museum filled with Fine Renaissance works of art has an excellent collection. Arrive towards the end of the day and stay near the central Plaza. You can walk the Plaza and nearby historic streets in the evening, a very picturesque and pleasant experience.

The fountain in the Ponce Central Plaza

The Ponce Plaza Fountain. Around the plaza is a Catholic Church and a picturesque old firehouse brightly painted and in excellent shape. Unless you want to visit the art museum, you may want to continue to another destination after breakfast.

detail of Spanish colonial architecture in Old San Juan, ruins

Old San Juan is the second oldest city in the New World, founded in 1513. (at left) This is a very old building that has not yet been restored and a good illustration of how they were built. Most of Old San Juan is now beautifully restored and has great historic interest.
