Well preserved Casa Villavicencio, one of the must visit heritage homes in Taal. It was memorable that our visit on June 12 coincided with the Philippine Independence Day. Gliceria Villavicencio is said to be one of the unknown heroine of the Philippines.
There's an entrance fee of 100php. Opens Friday to Sunday 8am to 5pm. Since this is private owned house during weekdays you can only visit it upon request. Upon entering you will watch a short video about the history of the house. Everything is well...More
From the outside, it was just another heritage house...
-You knock and you are led inside and greeted with baskets of cool towels to freshen you after touring Taal.
- The most enjoyable part of the tour is being able to don traditional Filipino attire....More
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.
Casa Villavicencio the living witness of heroism of a wealthy but very kind heart couple who helped Filipinos during the war. The house is still standing strong up to this day. This is a good venue for School activities like field trips. Worth the long...More

I went to Taal for a day trip yesterday and despite the rain, it remains a beautiful place to visit. Casa Villavicencio and the house next door, the Wedding Gift are two of Taal's many heritage homes worth visiting but both were closed when we went at 1:30pm. I think they are closed from Mondays to Fridays. I heard two other homes were undergoing renovations, sadly, like the Marcela Agoncillo home ( she made the Philippine Flag that we know it today ).
The Wedding Gift is the home given by the Villavicencio parents to their child when the child married. Quite elaborate these homes. Both European-inspired.
