Old world charm.

Go ahead and visit this house. It's the history of Vigan and the Philippines for only 50 pesos. Interesting rooms, paintings, and fotographs

I loved it sooo much! There is something that enriches me within when I see heritage places. Could be the old air that circulates the mansion but it's really refreshing. The experience is so memorable because of everything inside. It also widens the imagination of the past.

It so happened that when we got there one morning, the place was still closed. But the caretaker just arrived a few minutes after we did and he turned out to be the tour guide, in fact. It was such an educational tour. We really appreciate how thorough the discussion was, explaining the functions of the room, the culture of... More

This is one of the highlights of my Ilocos tour. It was very interesting to listen to the tour guide describe the history of the house, and in turn describe how it is to live during the Spanish Era. "Aanhin Ang Bahay Na Bato Kung Ang Nakatira'y Kwago, Buti Pa Ang Kubo Nakatira'y Tao." I've heard of this quote when... More

The mansion is a nice reminder of how affluent the life in the old days is. You'll start wondering once you entered this mansion. You're lucky if Manong Resty will guide you as one of the decendants, his stories are so interesting.

This is the mansion of Pres. Elpidio Quirino, it actually belongs to the family of his wife. The house looks strongly built. The ground floor serves as the garage and a wooden staircase leads to the 2nd floor. They have a formal living room and a receiving area. Azotea is a thing before and it is actually good to have...
