On a hill that overlooks Ponce, Museo Castillo Serralles is a symbol of the sugar industry that once controlled this part of the Puerto Rican economy. This lavish mansion, built-in 1930 in the Spanish Revival style, was the home of the Serralles family. Serralles’ family earned their fortunes by selling sugar and invested a large portion of their earnings in the sprawling mansion.
The Castillo Serralles Museum is a Spanish Revival-style house built for the Serralles family, the makers of the famous DonQ Rum. The Museum has a butterfly sanctuary, the Vigia Cross, and a tranquil Japanese garden with pagodas, benches, and Koi Ponds. This is an excellent location for weddings, parties, and much more.
El Museo Castillo Serralles has changed into a historical museum that allows visitors to learn about the immense impact sugar had once in Puerto Rican life. The grounds and the mansion are accessible to tourists who can visit the mansion and the grounds for a fee.
The Museum hosts a regular exhibit, and a guide offers guided tours in English or Spanish.
