Casa de España is the headquarters of a private social organization whose members are those of Spanish descent in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Avenida de La Constitución in Old San Juan. The building was designed in a Moorish Revival style by architect Pedro Adolfo de Castro. The building dates from 1934. Although it is named "Casa", it has never been a dwelling place for a family; rather it is a "house" whose members claim common ancestry. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. It is not open to the public, but private affairs may be arranged.
The building is a "typical" Moorish palace that is 119 feet (36 m) wide by 158 feet (48 m) long, with an interior rectangular courtyard, 51 feet (16 m) by 85 feet (26 m) long.
