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.

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.
