When I stepped inside the house after paying the fee it's like I'm transported to the Spanish colonial times. The rooms and beds were very old Spanish. Even the guides were dressed in Spanish clothes. I wish I could take photos but it's strictly forbidden.

An antique-house which gives clearer picture of how well-established people live back then. We're able to visit each part of the house. Each room has an explanation (in Tagalog and English) which helps us to understand what the room was for. Taking photographs is not allowed inside the house, but we can do it outside.

Casa Manila should not be missed in your Intramuros tour. It depicts a typical "ilustrado" house during the Spanish regime. Every part of the room signifies the economic status of the residents-owners. Check the doors, windows, staircase, furniture, and kitchenware reflecting the old way of affluent living in Manila.

A restored house of old Spaniards living quarters, this house has plenty of antics depicting the old way of rich living. It has plenty of rooms with exquisite furnishing, from the old wooden window frame to splendid decoration, this is a very rich man mansion. With security guards watching you almost at every corner, be mindful not to step out... More

The place where you can see old stuff properly preserved. From the kitchen wares and the house and everything you will see are all coming from the past.

This is a restored home that has beautiful furniture, rugs, and a few placards explaining the home in the museum. There is a variety of decorative arts to look at including a chapel and a salon. This is worth a visit and takes 1-2 hours.

I love old houses, and despite the Spanish conquest and oppression, it's hard to deny that many of the beautiful old houses in the Philippines are from that era. Casa Manila is well-preserved and has the minutiae of daily life during that period in Philippine history. From the capiz shell windows to the silverware and kitchenware, the contents of a... More

A well preserved example of how a wealthy family lived, Casa Manila stands as a fine example of colonial Philippines. With well labeled displays, visitors can walk through the house and understand who and how a family lived here. Furniture played the main role in explaining how the family lived. I would have liked to see guides, but there were... More
