A good visit for one of those baking hot sun blasted days in Vigan. Nice shady rooms, interesting exhibits, low entrance price (20 php I think). Very touching history of Alicia and Elpidio Quirino displayed in lower rooms, really brought home how the horrors of WWII affected Philippino families. Interesting description of male, female and 'couple' adornments on wooden four... More

If you are lucky to time the tour guide we had, he'll tell you more truths about Philippine history than Mr. Zaide ever did. You'll learn that China did intend to have the islands in their east as part of her sovereign, and you will stop wondering while the richest in the country are Chinese and why they own 90%... More

This lovely old house is really worth a visit. It maintains it's original rooms and furniture which help to evoke its heyday. The guides were informative and gave lots of information about the family that lived there. A wonderful old house, if you like history it's a must see.

This is a free museum, so we tried it and we were a,aged to see old furniture, old utensils used by our forefathers. Parking is a challenge so just walk around the area.

I loved it sooo much! There is something that enriches me within when I see heritage places. Could be the old air that circulates the mansion but it's really refreshing. The experience is so memorable because of everything inside. It also widens the imagination of the past.

It so happened that when we got there one morning, the place was still closed. But the caretaker just arrived a few minutes after we did and he turned out to be the tour guide, in fact. It was such an educational tour. We really appreciate how thorough the discussion was, explaining the functions of the room, the culture of... More

Go ahead and visit this house. It's the history of Vigan and the Philippines for only 50 pesos. Interesting rooms, paintings, and fotographs

This is one of the highlights of my Ilocos tour. It was very interesting to listen to the tour guide describe the history of the house, and in turn describe how it is to live during the Spanish Era. "Aanhin Ang Bahay Na Bato Kung Ang Nakatira'y Kwago, Buti Pa Ang Kubo Nakatira'y Tao." I've heard of this quote when... More

The mansion is a nice reminder of how affluent the life in the old days is. You'll start wondering once you entered this mansion. You're lucky if Manong Resty will guide you as one of the decendants, his stories are so interesting.
