Last Holy Thursday (April 21) we went on a trip to Bagac, Bataan to a place called Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. Here's a description of the place from their website.


A living museum of Philippine customs and traditions are re-born in a community typical of the 18th to early 20thcentury Philippines. Historical Principalia or noble class mansions, House of Stone or Bahay na Bato and Wooden Stilt houses that once, were old and decaying architectural pieces of a bygone era and slowly fading into the background of modern urban life are now, restored in a picturesque setting reminiscent of a Juan Luna or Amorsolo paintings. These architectural treasures that have been carefully and painstakingly reconstructed from different parts of the country and rebuilt, "brick by brick" and "plank by plank" now , stand resplendent with pride against a backdrop of majestic mountains, expansive rice fields and a running river that flows to the sea.


Currently, there are twenty seven heritage architectures, each full with memories and history.


Walking along village cobblestone streets or riding one of the caruajes (horse-drawn carriages) commands a feeling of nostalgia and wonder, romance and appreciation of simple living at its best.


At Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, the legacy of our forefathers and the beautiful Filipino traditions live on. It is a step back into the past, reliving the age- old traditions and practices distinct to our culture, without leaving the luxury and comforts of the modern world.


A showcase of Filipino talent, ingenuity and craftsmanship, Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar takes pride in the past... And keeps its hope for the future.


I took some photos of the place and here they are.

mukhang maganda place... para syang nayon pilipino...


aside from the old houses ano pa poh ang meron sa place...


Maganda yung place! :) Nakakarelax kasi malayo sa ingay at polusyon ng siyudad. Hehe. May restaurants din tapos may pool kung saan pwede din mag relax at beach din. Pwede rin sumakay sa bangka sa kanilang river, bagay na bagay pang couples. Hehe. :)

Hi fooboo, yup Casas offers accommodations - best to check their website for special offers. I've heard the place is nice, etc., but rather quiet. So it's best for a relaxing vacation, not for something very active. A bit pricey, but then again the owner spent a lot of money to develop the place, and he got all these old decrepit native houses from all over the country and rebuilt them brick by brick, so points for effort :D




Do they offer hotel accommodation? How much are their rates? Salamat sa sasagot. :)
