Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Feel the creaking stairs and floors at Yap Sandiego Ancestral House, one of the oldest wood residences in the Philippines. A family of Chinese merchants built this house in the 16th century using coral stones and wood. Restored in 2003, the structure retains much of its original roof and wall construction, serving as a private museum. The interior boasts carved antique furniture, chinaware, and statues of saints. Notice the huge mirror in the living room and a life-size statue of Santo Nino de Cebu.

There is a unique feeling inside the house. It feels like you're cut away from the outside world and you are time-machined back to the Spanish Era. Its an eerie feeling, especially when you're going there alone. For their staff? I would say it has room for improvements. Imo, I find them not so accomodating although I give them points for wearing baro't saya - the national dress.
Great place to chill out after the Jesuit House, very nice, still in use furnitures. A quick flash how a house look like in Cebu in the old times! Still owned the same family, they using it occasionally. Lady at entrace very pretty in traditional dress :)
