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.

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

Like the menu and the ambiance. The menu is very classic and the buffet is the best. The ambiance of a Filipino Culture is there and authentic. Like to go back at this place again.

A collection of European items in an old home, illustrating the attraction to household conveniences that Filipinos enjoyed, at least, those who could afford them. Custodians in uniforms from past period do not act as guides, rather, keep an eye out and request you not touch artefacts. The well off knew how to live! Love the ceiling fan in dining... More

House itself is beautiful and well renovated. Inside, you can see it is well decorated with old furniture and it really gives you the feel for how the Spanish would have lived in Manila

The Casa Real is a Must Visit when you are in Manila. The house, which is a recreation of how the Aristocracy lived in the Spanish Times is filled with antiques. Set aside an hour to tour this attraction.
