Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar (Day One) 

I have this fascination or a dream that I want to travel back in time so that I can appreciate arts and architecture back at those time. I really wanted to learn more about the design aesthetics of long gone days and how unique Old Manila was. Yes, we might have Intramuros to relive those good old times but my spirit “old school” me craves for something more.

Taking A Break From All The Walking


So happy that I share same sentiment with my college friends and we have decided to visit Las Cas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bataan for an early summer getaway.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a big compound or property where you can delight your sense of sight with pleasing Old Manila/Philippines style, dating back to the 1800s to 1920s-ish style. You got to experience cobblestones driveways which I only read in history books or I’ve seen in real life in Calle Crisologo in Vigan.

Old Building, Modern Times


We have decided to stay for one night in Las Casa to have a full experience how it feels like to live back on old days. Don’t be fooled as their rooms have air-conditioning units and television set (and most importantly, WiFi connection!).

Greenery


For our first day in Las Casas, we have decided to join the complimentary walking tour. Thanks to this tour, we were able to see the entire compound and even had the chance to enter the houses. The houses are originally came from different parts of the Philippines and they have relocated them all in this place. As wonderful as the exterior of each house, the interior is a spectacle of their own. It’s as if we have visited an entire compound of musuem dedicated to Old Philippines design.
