About the famous Barrio Amón
The Barrio Amón is characteristic of the history of San José. This neighborhood, located between Central and 9th streets and 7th and 13th avenues, forms one of the richest and most elegant architectural complexes in the capital of Costa Rica.
It differs from the others for being an old residential neighborhood made up of historic houses with architecture from the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, an example of which is its low-rise wooden houses with large terraces.
The neighborhood was founded by the coffee entrepreneur Amón Fasileau-Duplantier in 1890, who took an important part in the growth that was taking place in San José, as a result of the new socio-spatial organization of the Costa Rican capital. The families of the small Josephine nobility settled there, who contributed to building this beautiful neighborhood.
