Juana Díaz doesn't figure prominently into the typical travel itinerary, but for the traveler who has a bit of extra time, a stop in this small town is worth the effort, for Juana Díaz is the epicenter of a very important cultural tradition in Puerto Rico: the celebration of the Three Kings. Technically an extension of the municipality of Ponce, Juana Díaz was nicknamed "The Versailles of Ponce" by famed Puerto Rican poet Luis Lloréns Torres. While some of the glory that earned it that name may be faded, the massive Three Kings sculpture in the town's main square and its Three Kings Museum make for an interesting layover on a drive between Salinas and Ponce.
