Visited the place with my wife and friends. I have passed the house several times. We were curious about the old house and were just waiting for the right time to visit as the entrance fee is a bit high. The fee is really worth it. The house is well maintained and furnished for the age. I was impressed that... More

This is an interesting ancestral house to visit when in Cebu. It's located in Parian, just a few meters from the Cebu Heritage Monument. Entrance fee is Php50.00. Well-maintained and truly amazing.

House is well preserved although some portions have started to deteriorate. they should keep it to its original form at much as possible. The government should invest in its restoration and preservation... ;-)

This tiny house is full of antique objects of virtually everything colonial. It's like being on a scene from Noli or El Fili. The Php 50.00 entance fee is probably too much for the actual experience.
