The guide will point out some key differences between the two houses and how the people lived during that time. There are of course similarities but it is interesting to note the differences.

Second best ancestral home in Silay. Well maintained. A bit darker inside compared to Gaston house. During the old days, ice used to come from the United States and would cost about P5000 a kilo in today's money. Imagine that.

Its structures and everything inside of it will reveal its originality of being in old civilization. A good stop to visit in Silay.

One of the few heritage houses in Silay that was opened to public. A typical Spanish abode which has its garage on the first floor. A few steps from the garage is the storage room of the house where mini dolls of prominent Filipino heroes...More

Perhaps the most well-preserved interiors in all the ancestral houses in Silay. Outside and at the ground floor, it just looks plain. Once you get to the second floor, you'll be amazed mostly of the furniture and ceiling of the house which is made of...More
