The Serrallés Castle does not belong to the Serrallés family since the 90s, although it does retain its name. This complex is the property of the municipality and is managed as a Museum by the Board of Trustees of Castillo Serrallés Inc., a non-profit organization that comes from the private sector and claims to be especially committed to Ponce culture and tourism.
The crosshead, which is imposed 300 feet above sea level was a point of communication in the 30’s. The lookout at that time, was the person who carried the communication, warning with a “horn” which boat was in port. With this the merchants knew that they had to go to the place of delivery to pick up their products. In the same way the town learned when pirate ships arrived. Today, it is part of the tours that date the history.
Guided tours of the complex that includes: Museum, Butterfly Garden, Japanese Garden and Cruceta del Vigía between the hours of 9:00 a.m. at 5:00 p.m.
