Summer Escapade 2: Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

The Philippines was once occupied by Spain for more than 300 years. Hence, the culture of the Philippines today was greatly influenced by the Spanish people; one of which is architecture. Most old houses you will find here today have Spanish aesthetics. 

I have always admired old Spanish style houses here in the Philippines. There is just something about the architecture as well as the interiors that speak to me. So when I first heard about Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, I immediately made a promise to myself that I will make a visit before this year ends. I was smitten by so much history each house has to share and by the intricate & elaborate interiors. Each house is truly a masterpiece! I hope you enjoy this tour as much as I did. :)

  8. I love old houses, too! Everything inside an old house gives a different feeling. It makes me feel closer to history! One of the reasons why I was so ecstatic to work in my previous company was because it was in Intramuros!

    Love all the photos!
