Description:

The Museo Casa Cautiño is a remarkable example of late 19th century architecture located in the Historic Zone of the municipality of Guayama, also known as “Pueblo de Brujos” or Warlock’s Town. It sits on the corner of Vicente Palés and Palmer streets, overlooking the town’s public plaza, where it served as home to three generations of the Cautiño Family up until 1974.

The building’s design was commissioned in 1882 to local architect Don Manuel Texidor by Genaro Cautiño Vázquez as a wedding gift to his wife. Completed five years later, this one-story U-shaped house with an interior patio features a delightful blend of the neoclassical with Puerto Rican “criollo” stylings popular throughout the island’s southern region.

The museum’s spectacular collection is made up largely of original pieces, including restored works of art, sculptures, and finely crafted furniture from all over the world. Listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the Casa Cautiño has been carefully preserved for all to marvel at and enjoy.
