Places near Metro Manila to Reconnect with Philippine Heritage

Take a tour into the country's past.

This place always fashions a highly controversial topic among heritage advocates, with wide-ranging discussions weighing both the positive and negative. One thing’s for sure though, from an aesthetic point of view, Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar reimagines an idyllic picture of the colonial period. The destination is the result of an ambitious project of transferring century-old houses from all over the country to to a vast seaside property in Bagac, Bataan to build a small village mirroring the 18th to 19th century Philippines.

Today, Las Casas offers visitors a charming peek into these times. Walking around just immersing in the bucolic vibe and listening to the tour guides, a day or two will definitely help you pick up additional understanding of our history.
