The value of the work that the first mayoress of San Juan did, and still does, is frankly incalculable.

Casa-Museo Felisa Rincón (Felisa Rincón House/Museum)

Thank you, Doña Fela.

One of the icons of female recognition who revolutionized the Puerto Rican high society at the beginning of the 20th century, Felisa Rincón de Gautier, Doña Fela, now has a house/museum with the souvenir and tribute to her work as philanthropist and first mayoress of San Juan; the post which she took on for more than 20 years. In addition to being a pharmacist, dressmaker and politician, Doña Fela was a defender of women's rights and people without resources, who continues to support through her foundation today, 20 years after she passed away. The house/museum, which is located opposite the 'Puerta de San Juan' monument, can only be visited by prior request and the objects that you'll find inside are furniture, historical documentation and photographs of this public figure. The centre also serves as the organization of conferences, workshops and exhibitions that continue the work of Doña Fela.
