First time to visit Casa Villavicencio and I was so impressed! Full of history, as if you were re-living the past. Highly recommended for both local & foreign tourists. A must see when in Taal, Batangas!

Entrance fee is 100 pesos with merienda. You'll start with a film showing to get a bit of history. Then go through the huge house with nice furnishing, glorious windows, and amazing ceiling. Lastly, you'll have suman and hot choco. It was worth the visit.

The house is really worth a visit if you like antics and architecture. The entrance is a bit pricey but includes delicious snacks to enjoy in the garden a bit as if you were part of the place. Lovely guide and caretaker.
