Centro de Bellas Artes

Lonely Planet review

This fine arts center stands just west of town in the former home of the Puerto Rican High Court. The collection focuses on emerging and established Puerto Rican artists (including a somewhat humorous set of reproductions), but the most stunning objects on display are the intricately carved gourds of folk artist César Ruiz, and the religious statues in the lobby. The adjoining galleries are hung with student works from the school across the street and some dusty dioramas on Taíno culture. A casual tour is available in English.
