Visit Parque de Bombas, a museum of firefighting and a landmark of the city. Built in 1882, the building served as the first fire station in Puerto Rico, whose firefighters battled some major blazes in the early years. After 108 years of service, it was turned into a museum; today, you can view many relics, items, and artifacts from the station's history. Admire the Moorish Revival style and vibrant red color of the distinctive building, designed for the 1882 Exhibition Trade Fair.

Great history. A landmark you should see in this trip. We stayed in San Juan and took the scenic drive to Ponce. Less than 2 hours and beautiful drive. more »
We didn’t get to go inside and take a tour. The local police let us peep inside and explained to us what certain things are. It’s pretty fascinating how well kept and maintained some of the old fire..... more »
Looks pretty good after Hurricane Maria. Freshly painted the only nice part of Ponce's central area. Many drug addicts peddling for cash. The church as usual looks beautiful.
I always love visiting parque de bombas when I visit my family in Ponce. Very interesting and full of history!
We stopped by here for a quick photo shoot of the building since we were passing by Ponce on highway 2. This was on my list to photograph and of course we had good weather to do it. This is a museum with some of the older fire fighting equipment on display.
Small cute, sleepy town with some nice buildings. Worth a quick visit.
A good place to discover our first fire department on this town and a little culture.
