- Three Kings Festival.
- By: QP
Every year in Juana Díaz starts with a deeply religious event on January 6: the Three Kings Day. On this day, the Three Kings visit the Island's towns, giving joy and presents to the children. In Juana Díaz there is a big celebration, which culminates at the Plaza Román Baldorioty de Castro where the Three Kings offer incense, gold and myrrh to the Baby Jesus. This huge commemoration has been celebrated since 1884.
Also at the Plaza Baldorioty de Castro you will find the Monument of the Three Kings, which honors the Indian, African and Spanish heritage of Puerto Rico.
