Parque de Bombas
The Parque de Bombas in Ponce is actually the city's classic firehouse, built in 1882 to house the firefighting corps of the south. It is one of the city's most recognizable landmarks for its bright colors, which include red and yellow. Inside you can see plenty of fire vehicles from various decades; all of them served time here. There is a tourism information booth nearby, operated by the city. Admission is free.
