  • A well maintained antique house, makes one see the history of cebu in one go. The guides are helpful, the tablet rental is pretty much useless...XD Just go for the ticket with no tablet. 
  • This place was much better than we expected. The guided tour was very educational and very pleasant. Learned a lot about Cebu's history. The lunchroom had good brewed coffee and delicious snacks. Also...  more »
  • Near the Heritage Monument, the Casa Gorordo is a museum with guide, which shows you the life and history of the first bishop of Cebu. The interesting thing is to visit the House and understand the reason for each piece of furniture and room

  • For only P70.00 (quite expensive) you can a.) Get the feel living inside a hundred year old house. b.) Count each steps of the stairs as you chant, "oro, plata, mata." c.) See old personal effects we don't use anymore. Just stroll, examine the exibits, relax in their veranda, just take note that picture taking is not allowed. Ouch!
  • Awesome preservation of Philippines history fragment.. :)
