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.

Parque de Bombas reviews
Parque de Bombas ( Firehouse ) sits in a scenic park. Restaurants, shops and hotels are a walking distance from the area. more »
Not a lot going on at the Parque de Bombas, but it’s colorful and nice. We have a big family (8 of us) and made it though in 5 mins. It’s good to see if you’re there, but not worth a trip from San..... 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!
