The resident caretaker personally gave us a tour of the historic mansion which contains some priceless antiques. It's worth the visit.

Step back into history was fascinating. Learning about Syquia originally being from China was a glimpse how filipinos have Chinese blood in them going back generations.

The first stop of our tour. There was a guided tour going on when we went up, but I only heard snippets of the rich history of the place because I was too occupied checking out the rest of the house, taking photos as I went. Every inch of the house was magnificent, even the kitchen, which was renovated with... More

The house and furniture are well preserved. Strike up a conversation with the caretaker to learn more about the history of the house ( His family has worked for the house owners' family for generations). The mansion can be visited after you take a stroll in Calle Crisologo ( walking distance).

after the disspointment of the hidden garden we went here. although it's a nice place to walk around and things to look at there is little free info. i think this is a bit cheeky that basically you have to have a tour guide to find out anything about the place. even things like the painting most do not have...

There was entrance fee of 30 pesos each. There were no guides but the caretaker was very accommodating and more than willing to answer a few questions. There was a small portion not accessible to visitors. The kitchen was renovated and modernized but the rest of the mansion maintained its vintage look.

A great insight into an original house. There are heaps or period features and furniture. Not overrun by tourists either makes this a pleasant spot.

This house is very well preserved and there are many items that reflect the history and beauty of a bygone age and time. Look around and imagine what life must have been like in those days.
