Casa Cautiño’s legacy recreates the history of the people of Puerto Rico. Designed by Guayamés architect Manuel Texidor. Built between 1882 – 1887, by the commission of industrial Genaro Cautiño Vázquez. The construction of this museum is one of great elegance, utilizing the best materials available at the time. Some of the features include the façade of the turn of the century and style of neoclassical architecture mixed with Creole architecture. “Cautiño” lived in the house, conserving and enriching with works of art so that in the future it would be open for anyone to enjoy it. The Institute of Puerto Rican Culture restored the house in 1987, marking it a historic moment because 100 years had passed in its completion, and then it was named as the Museo Casa Cautiño in 1988.
The Casa Cautiño Museum is now under the Administration of the Municipality of Guayama.
