Museo de la Massacre de Ponce
Museo de la Massacre de Ponce (corner of Calle Marina and Calle Aurora, 787/844-9722, Tues.–Sun. 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m., free), has a very modest exhibit in Spanish dedicated to the memory of a bloody incident on Palm Sunday in 1937 when local police were ordered to fire on Puerto Rican Nationalists demonstrating for Puerto Rico’s independence from the United States. Nineteen people were killed and more than 200 were injured.
