this place was a great find. i was told owners discovered that it was the lost 1730 jesuit house just a few years back so it was a surprise by itself.

When touring the house, make sure you have a tour guide to make it interesting. The lady tour guide we had made it very interesting and funny!

Nice place, we'll worth a look. Gives a feeling how the rich and powerful Jesuit lived. The tour guide is a charming chatterbox.

A little hard to find, even the Taxi didn't know it. But well worth a visit. This hidden Gem is up and coming on the tourist trail. Many antiques and the History of the house is amazing.

Going to the 1730 Jesuit House is a MUST when you are in Cebu. Here, you will see how the Jesuits spread Christianity throughout Cebu. Don't forget to purchase a seal of the order, or the "Año 1730" seal that costs Php 150. This will remind you of your visit there. :)

The warehouse adds a surprising effect as you enter the vicinity. The smiling people in the house most especially the very good guy Christian who toured me around the... More
