Antiguo Casino de Puerto Rico
Located between two avenues (Luis Munoz Rivera and Juan Ponce de Leon) and Plaza Colon in Old San Juan, the Old Casino of Puerto Rico was designed by the firm of the Del Valle Zeno brothers and is distinguished by its Spanish-style design and French.The project was developed by engineers Fernando Montilla and Miguel Ferrer and inaugurated in 1917.The place, which has hosted various types of activities such as weddings, official events, galas and other celebrations, delights those who visit it with the main facade that looks onto Avenida Ponce de Leon and integrates a porte-cochere or an entrance for cars."The baroque of the second empire, accentuated by a mansard roof, creates an image of luxury and splendor suitable for the architecture of this association headquarters as is the typology of the theater or the casino," says the online site of the National Registry of Historical Places of Puerto Rico.These two levels, the first being more sober with small windows and fluted in the walls, and a second more ornate and luxurious level with "Corinthian columns, portholes, garlands, consoles, heraldry and French doors" have been the headquarters of many agencies and organizations such as the Escuela Libre de Musica, the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture (1955-1970), among others. All this until it passed into the hands of the Convention District Authority. In 2012, the last remodeling was completed.A curious fact about this building is that it was used during the Second World War as a club of officers who were part of the US Army.The old Casino of Puerto Rico was included in the National Register of Historic Places on September 22, 1977
