The Casa Cautiño is a legacy that recreates years of the history of our people of Puerto Rico.
It was designed by Guayamés architect Manuel Texidor and built in 1882 – 1887, by commission of industrial Genaro Cautiño Vázquez. Its construction is one of great elegance, good taste and with the best materials of the time. It includes the façade of the turn of the century and style of neoclassical architecture mixed with Creole architecture.
Casa Cautiño also collects the tenacity of a guayamese family, “Cautiño”, who for several generations inhabited the house conserving it and enriching it with works of art, many of which are now preserved and restored for the enjoyment of all.
The Institute of Puerto Rican Culture restored the house in 1987, a historic moment in which one hundred years of its construction was completed, and then it was inhabited as the Museo Casa Cautiño in 1988.
The Casa Cautiño Museum is now under the Administration of the Municipality of Guayama.
