You’ll find the historic and emblematic red and black Parque de Bombas in the southern town of Ponce. Instantly recognizable, this old fire station is one of the island’s most photographed landmarks. The Parque de Bombas is located in Ponce’s enchanting town square, Plaza de las Delicias, directly behind the town’s cathedral. For many years, the building housed the city’s main fire station, and now it houses a small museum. The Parque de Bombas was Puerto Rico’s first-ever fire station, and it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on July 12, 1984.
