Photographer's Note

The Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe, located in downtown Ponce, in the middle of Ponce's town square, known as Plaza Las Delicias, is at the center of the Ponce Historic Zone.
The cathedral has a history that dates to 1670. In 1670, a small chapel was built in the center of the colonial settlement of Ponce on the site of the present cathedral.
It has been damaged several times by fires and earthquakes. It stands out among Puerto Rico's other four cathedrals for its intricate design. Architecturally, it is designed in the neoclassical style. Structurally, it follows a cruciform plan, with a large dome at the crossing.
