Fodor's Review

The former residence of sugar baron Antonio Roig Torruellas, Museo Casa Roig was built in 1919. Czech architect Antonio Nechodoma designed the facade, unusual for its wide eaves, mosaic work, and stained-glass windows with geometric patterns. This building, which bears more than a passing resemblance to those of Frank Lloyd Wright, was Puerto Rico's first 20th-century building to be included on the register of National Historic Places. The Roig family lived in the home until 1956; it was then abandoned before being turned over to the University of Puerto Rico in 1977. It's currently a museum and cultural center that houses historical photos, furniture, and rotating exhibits of works by contemporary island artists.
