House Museum of Ponce de León


This small palace was built by the famous explorer Juan Ponce de León in the region of San Rafael de Yuma over 500 years ago. He lived there in 1505 with his wife, Leonor, and his four children. Here, Ponce de León developed a successful wood exporting business, and later went to Puerto Rico where he eventually become governor. He later traveled to North American to explore modern-day Florida.

This plantation-house museum has medieval architecture and is now a museum open from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
