  • Great place to vist

  • Historic and beautiful
  • My family house, built by my grandfather Dr. Guillermo Ermelindo Salazar Palau in 1911 as a wedding present to my grandmother, 16 year old Sara Isabel Rivera Carbonell. Visited regulary during my childhood and up until it was converted in a museum. I have wonderful memories of Sunday lunches with all the cousins, aunt, uncles and my grandmother, who lived in the house until her demise. A must see if you go to Ponce ... A glimpse into an era long gone, our heritage and history. Don't miss it!
