Casitas: Puerto Rico Cultural Icon

casitas puerto rico

Hundreds of years have passed since the Spanish architects first built San Juan, yet the freshness of each new day dulls none of their building’s magic. The “Casitas” (little houses) which are now viewed as charming recollections of a time long gone will live on forever, as a source of pride of the nation’s past. The vibrant colors and the attention to detail reflect the spirit and pride of the Puerto Rican people and their zest for life

The casitas Puerto Rico (Old San Juan facades) and the elegance of Old San Juan’s buildings are a popular theme in local Puerto Rican Art. You can find them made of ceramic, wood or plaster.
