Some of you may remember the cows that grazed all over New York City a while ago. Companies bought the cows and decorated them at will for charity. There was an Elvis cow, a cow with curlers in her hair, a Statue of Liberty cow, etc, etc, etc.
Well, it seems the same was done in Ponce, Puerto Rico. Only instead of cows, there are lions in Ponce. And, if you know your history, you know the lions represent the Conquistador Ponce de Leon who explored Puerto Rico -- or Borinquen as the Tainos called the island paradise -- from end to end looking for a fountain of youth. Here in all their glory are the Leones of Ponce that I found in the main Plaza during my last visit.

This final lion is from the permanent fountain at La Plaza.
Ponce es Ponce. Lo demas es parking.
