  • Considered as the oldest stone house in Batanes and is very much preserved. It can show you how Ivatans lived long long ago and how their houses looked. You are allowed to enter the house and look around.
  • Awesome! Nice place to visit and see how people survive during the 18th century from nature's challenge
  • They say this is the most-photographed house in Basco. I think they're right.
  • Oldest stone house in Batanes that is still habitable.
  • Well preserved example of Batanes's vernacular architecture and a maytuwab type of house. Originally built in the late 1800s. Food storage area for root crops and refuge for farm animals can be glimpsed in this dwelling.
