Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

title

Aside from the usual weekend beach getaway,  Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a heritage park situated in the province of Bagac, Bataan. Owned by art collector and Architect, Jose Rizalino Acuzar, the place showcases different ancestral houses. They transported 18th-19th century houses from their original sites and rebuilt them; creating a charming village of cobblestone streets.

We arrived at about 1pm and checked In. While waiting for our room to be ready we had our late lunch at a restaurant inside the resort. It’s a restaurant that serves delicious Filipino food. After having our lunch we joined the walking tour around Las Casas.

It was nice to get to know the history of every Casa or Houses that they rebuilt. After the walking tour, we finally went to the room at Paseo de Escolta to drop our bags and put on our swimwear so we can finally dip into the Batis themed pool and at the beach.

Before heading to the pool we rented a golf car to tour around the whole place and take a lot of pictures (for Instagram 😛 ).

After that, We spent the rest of the day swimming and admiring how beautiful the place is.

Visiting Las Casas was worth the long road trip from Manila. Stepping into its gates was like stepping into the past, giving us a tiny idea where and how our ancestors used to live. Nostalgic, romantic, and awe-inspiring.
