Walked through as part of an intramuros tricycle tour. I do enjoy the old buildings. They were setting up for a party or something in 1 of the center areas.

A well preserved former opulent home that is now a museum. It is a good representattion of life in the Spanish colonial days and has been well preserved. They do not allow photographs for fear of damage to the preservation of the property. Lovely courtyard setting to and some great photo opportunities.

A beautiful house carefully filled with period fin-de-siècle furniture. Imagine you're the honored guest of one of the richest families to town. Or even better, that you're the head of that family. This fabulous might have been yours. No photographs allowed, and security officers watch you like hawks. Apparently a prior houseguest made off with the family jewels. You can... More

The museum in Manila house gives a good impression on the living of the rich in 19th century. But you should also not miss the small and cosy restaurants inside the yards.

This is a place you should visit to see the early lifestyle of the rich, famous and powerful of the formative years of Philippines history. This is an actual house of a very important man. You get a peek at how personal religion was practiced, the influence to different cultures in a Filipino's life from his furniture, his rooms and... More

Yes, it was built relatively recently but it is still a really nice museum with an excellent collection of Spanish furniture and objets d'art. I have been to many Spanish colonial places in Latin America and can safely say I was impressed with Casa Manila, which is a very good example of Spanish colonial architecture.

I was really surprised with my recent visit to Manila. Its a growing city beyond my expectations. And they preserved their historical sites very well in Intramuros area. One of the highlight building is Casa Manila which looks like classic European facade building complete with restaurants serving various kinds of local and international culinary. If you loved historical European sites... More

It is a nice colonial building, but nothing extraordinary. A nice and small cafe located inside the yard of the casa.
