Description:

This historical site is located at the western end of San Sebastián Street. Feel free to enter the gates and step into Juan Ponce de León’s family residence. Originally intended as a retreat for the Spanish conquistador and first governor of Puerto Rico, it became the ancestral home of his descendants for 250 years. Ponce de León died in 1521, wounded by a poisoned arrow in Florida during his search for the legendary Fountain of Youth. He never enjoyed the exquisite gardens, fountains and courtyard of the Casa Blanca that his son-in-law built for him.
