Plaza Las Delicias


Plaza Las Delicias is the main plaza in the town of Ponce, Puerto Rico. The historic Parque de Bombas and Ponce Cathedral buildings are located within the plaza, which actually consists of two squares: Plaza Muñoz Rivera on the north and Plaza Degetau on the south. The square is the center of the Ponce Historic Zone, and it is surrounded by the Ponce City Hall, the historic Teatro Fox Delicias, the Banco de Crédito y Ahorro Ponceño and Banco de Ponce buildings, and the Armstrong-Poventud Residence. The square dates back to the early Spanish settlement in Ponce of 1670. It is the main tourist attraction of the city, receiving about a quarter of a million visitors per year.
