It has a great history but nothing too amazing about. It does have the great city view. For first timer, I think it's ok. I rather go to the beach...

This is a beautiful museum, with antique furniture, pics of sugar cane plantations owned by the Serralles.

I went to the Castillo with my immediate family & my great aunt & uncle (who are from Ponce) that we met for the first time. The video was informative & quick (about 10 mins). Our tour guide was extremely friendly & informative. We took the last tour at 5 & he did a great job of getting us through the house before it closed, but also making sure that we had enough time to enjoy each stop in the house. The butterfly garden was slightly disappointing. It seemed as if there were more cocoons than actual butterflies. The focal point of the trip was standing out on the terrace & seeing the beautiful views of the city of Ponce with the mountains as the backdrop. The formal dining room was also absolutely beautiful. It's a shame that you cannot take pictures inside, but you're not distracted & can fully enjoy the mansion.

This castle museum provides an amazing glimpse into the family that built the south of Puerto Rico (the Serralles). The views from the castle are breathtaking and will make you never want to leave. The history that the museum provides was incredibly interesting as well as the furniture and things left behind by the estate. This is definitely a treasure in ponce!
