Nestled in the center of the city of Ponce, Puerto Rico sits a very historic building called El Parque de Bombas or Fire Station. It is located behind the Cathedral and next to City Hall. It was established in 1883, when Puerto Rico was still under the rule of the Spanish Crown.
The red and black color are the colors of the city of Ponce.
Inside there are photos of the firemen that worked during the famous fire of 1883, as well as an antique firetruck. Ponce now has a more modern fire station, however, it is this iconic building that you will often see on postcards, posters, other mementos of Ponce and Puerto Rico.
You can often see tourists walk by and stop and look at this very eye catching structure.
