This place is a good place to visit. It is Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo's old house. It is sitting on a lot measuring around one hectare. It contains memorabilia from during Aguinaldo's time. It is a must place to visit if you are interested in Philippine history.

This is a good musuem for history lovers. It is the only attraction in this town. It provides a good insight into the social and land ownership in the area and the role the town played in the struggle for independence No admission fee but gratuity is encouraged. You can pass by this shrine in the way to Tagaytay

On ordinary days, this place is a destination for educational tours. The shrine is the former home of the first president of the Republic of the Philippines. This the place is also where his remains are entombed. But on christmas, new year or local holidays, this place is very lively. Prior to Philippine Independence Centennial celebration in 1998, cars and... More

Away from the bustle of the city lies a historic site, the home of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. The house is spacious and well-maintained. However, there were no tour guides, it would be better if there is someone who will go with the visitors and explain the life of Gen. Aguinaldo.

The museum and shrine are very well maintained and give visitors a peek into the life of Pres. Aguinaldo and his days as both revolutionary, president and private citizen. A nice park is right in front of the shrine where you can relax and enjoy the river view.

The Aguinaldo Shrine is a proud testament to the cry for independence by Filipinos from Spanish colonial rule. Though the mansion is not exactly what it was in 1898, it is, however, a very important landmark of where the declaration of Philippine history was made. The shrine offers a look at how the President Emilio Aguinaldo's family lived when he... More

Bowling alley and swimming pool included. Room has been newly airconditioned. Second floor shows the kitchen, bedrooms, large living room. Enjoy the large wooden floors!... More

Now I can say that I am really attracted to wood, literally. I love that Emilio's house was well preserved. Tourists can see the all the wood works, carvings, intricately designed ceilings. I just love it. I am not a history buff, I usually got bored during History lessons but I enjoyed my visit here - because of the design... More
