The “Casa Fait” is one of the most impressive destinations in Puntarenas. It is considered a true symbol of the cultural contribution that Puntarenas experienced as a result of the arrival of the train and the revitalization of the port economy in the area.
Fait was recognized as a skilled boiler mechanic who had settled in Puntarenas since the beginning of the last century, repairing mainly government vessels.
In the mid-30s, due to health problems, he decided to return to Europe for a long time, losing the businesses and properties he had in our country. Already recognized as the "Casa Fait" it then passed into the hands of the Bank of Costa Rica, being occupied by the manager of the entity, Mr. Arturo Chiager.
In the 1930s, the house was acquired at a public auction by Dr. Miguel Macaya Lahmann, who moved his residence to Puntarenas. He lived there for more than 20 years, and in the mid-1950s, he gave part of the house for the United States Consult, Emilio G. Helpenstell, to inhabit it, setting up his office in one of the rooms on the second floor.
