Not as well-maintained as nearby Casa Gorordo, but still a definite must-see. The history that resides within its walls is unbelievable. Here’s hoping it gets better support so it continues to be preserved and enjoyed by future generations.

The experience was unexpectedly great! What we thought would be just another one the usual visits to an ancestral house turned out to be the most interesting part of our itinerary. Thanks to our tour guide, Lloyd, who made the tour very interesting and entertaining.

Think of spending about an hour for the tour. It is an open house (still used sometimes by the owner) full of artifacts of cultural and historical significance. Like a museum, but you are allowed to even touch things. Try... More
