Great little square to relax for all ages. The church and firehouse are in the square and many benches to sit. We sat on the benches and drank beer from a local bar. Earlier in the night, there was a concert. Many children play and there are food trucks and ice cream available. There are a few restaurants/bars, but not... More

There is always a police presense around so you fill safe. That is good when you have a lot of homeless hanging around. They were not pushy or anything, just living... More

We had a great time during Carnivale 2017. Very impressed by the clean up every morning prior to the next days events and crowds. Square was filed with vendors including food drink and local handcraft vendors

We really missed having something like this in OSJ, Nice park, lots of security, some food kiosks, popular ice cream shop nearby. You can hear music from the clubs and just kick back. Lovely in the evening.

It's a nice plaza with a bit of history, easy parking nearby. Some nice photo opportunities, but in my opinion not worth the drive from San Juan.

Walked with my daughter around and sat to enjoy the music of a Retreta by Ponce´s Band. Wonderful evening scenario and music!

This plaza is great for walking and admiring the downtown side of this municipality. Is an extensive plaza where you can sit down and relax. You can locate nearby restaurants, hotels and some stores.

Visited the plaza at Christmas. Nice area to walk but that is about it. Beyond building surrounding the plaza there is very little. It is quite ghostly still once off the plaza. Nice little church in the plaza.

Visiting the plaza is a great place to distract itself and see Ponce in a different point of view with it's attractions it behold there like the cathedral and the Parque Bombas for example. I live here in Ponce and I study Hotels and Tourism and I must say that I would give the five stars for a rating because... More
