We were doing the tour of Cebu today with friends and decided to visit the Yap House. It was well worth the time. It dates back to 1670 and is well preserved. I suggest that you include it on your tour.

I am photographer and my client wanted me to take photo of her in the old house of Cebu. She was amazed by the age of the house. I think it is 300 years old or more. Old the thing inside are antique.

We stopped of at this site and it definitely worth the Php50 that we each played to enter. The little briefing was a nice treat too. We were given free reign of the house and they put some slippers on your feet to go upstairs. Good place in central Cebu.

Visited last November 2013. This is the oldest house in Cebu City built during the country's Spanish colonial era.

There was a 10php entrance fee and a tour guide that will give you a summary about the house. It is good to know how our ancestors lived by seeing their kitchen, lavatory, and bedrooms. It was said that the ancestor's generation today still uses the house.

Like going back to life in the Philippines centuries ago during the Spanish colonial period. Don't miss this house which is a highlight of our tour in Cebu. The entrance fee is affordable, and the place is easily accessible from the city center. Just bring a photo with you maybe to show around people and you can get your way... More

For an entrance fee of 50 pesos you can enjoy and take pictures of the house. The house contains different kinds of antiques and the tour guides will give you brief history of the house. They also know how to take the best picture/angle of the house. 100% would recommend!
