Description:

The southern town of Juana Díaz is synonymous with the religious day of the Epiphany, which has been officially celebrated here every January 6th, without interruption, since 1884.

Epiphany Day – or Three Kings’ Day, as it is known in Puerto Rico – is observed in remembrance of the offerings made by Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar to the newborn Jesus after their long voyage to Bethlehem. The Casa Museo de los Santos Reyes pays homage to this traditional Catholic festivity by displaying historical images, songs, and written accounts of the yearly celebrations.

In Juana Díaz, the procession begins as the Three Wise Men depart from the museum, followed by the gathered crowds of locals and visitors. They march towards the town’s main public square, where mass is held.

With over 125 years of history, these joyful observances are a testament to the townspeople’s faith and traditional values.
