Just off Ponce’s main square, the Catedral de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe sports two silver-topped towers glistening in the Caribbean sun. The Cathedral’s founding dates back almost 350 years to a royal decree by King Carlos II of Spain, though it has been ravaged and rebuilt from fire and earthquakes. Listed on the US government’s National Register of Historic Places, Ponce Cathedral is an architectural and artistic gem. More artistically inclined visitors should also visit the nearby Art Museum of Ponce which contains some of the most amazing specimens of fine art curated in the Americas.
