Welcome for International Students 2011

Castle and Museum, a Great Touring Experience in Ponce! Eduardo A. Hernández, Counselor International Relations Office

1Visiting places of both touristic and educational interest is a goal we have at the International Relations Office. Bringing those experiences close to the heart of our international and English Trimester students is a must but more than that, it is an art that can produce extreme pleasure and satisfaction. That is the way I feel every time students marvel and awe at the beauties and wonders this great Island of Puerto Rico has in store for them.



This time, planning and selection enabled us to decide for The Serrallés Castle and the Ponce Museum of Art. I have to admit it was my first time at the castle. Nevertheless, it was a great first time. There we went on the 1st day of April 2011, on a beautiful, warm, spring day. The place is a beautiful 1926, three story mansion complex of both “yesterday and today” combining Spanish-Moroccan and other architecture and decoration styles which prevailed in those days. A splendid museum comprises the family furniture, clothing and decorations of the time. It includes one of the first elevators installed in a family house and a steam distiller cautiously curated to withstand the years of exposure to the elements. It was designed by Pedro Adolfo de Castro y Besosa, architect. The Butterfly Garden, next to a grand gazebo, is a sweet and pleasant finding. We had admission to it and interacted with plants and butterflies. We were amazed by the gardens as well as with the castle interiors. It was a very pleasant tour. The guide and the house personnel made our tour a most complete one, and it demonstrated our excellent Puerto Rican hospitality.


Well, the Ponce Museum of Art was another surprise with its new makeover, including the new glass door entrance, a main counter with a view to the famous staircases, improved lighting, curated paintings that look just painted, a projection theater and a smaller but still well managed art garden. Our guides did an excellent job during the two hours we toured the first and second floors of the building. Another detail highlighted by the guides was the internationalization of the art available at the museum. At the end of our visit we went to see the famous 1895 painting: Flaming June by the famous artist Lord Frederic Leighton.


This tour was sponsored by Inter American University - Metro Campus and the International Relations Office. We are glad 35 students participated and enjoyed this significant cultural, educational, activity in the Pearl of the South: Ponce!
