Casa Manila is an old house showing how a rich aristocrats live then. Entrance fee is very minimal however, unless you acquire the services of a tour guide outside, you are on your own. You can see the bedrooms, living rooms, kitchen, comfort rooms and bathrooms then. Except for the kitchen, the entire house has a red carpet wherein you... More

Lovely old hacienda, lovingly restored and furnished, apparently by Imelda Marcos. Full of artefacts typical of the Spanish colonial period , around the 16th century.

Very interesting house to visit and not expensive. Can be short or long depending on how much objects you look at. Well worth it

What is it like living in colonial (read: Spanish era) Manila? We know about Intramuros as the center of Spanish administration in the Philippines, but we have little knowledge on how people have lived inside the Walled City. Thus, Casa Manila came in next in our Museum-A-Month project. Casa Manila, a “colonial lifestyle” museum, is only a section of Plaza... More

This is so interesting to see with the courtyard in the middle. The architecture is really colonial and definitely a look into the past. You arrive at it from the busy Street through a small courtyard with a bar. Looked like a nice bar but unable to stop as we were on a walking tour with others. Further through you... More

This house museum is a great way to see how the wealthy lived during the Spanish colonial era in Manila. The home is well preserved and very beautiful. It is in the heart of Intramuros and a must see place. Plan about 30 minutes.

We found Casa Manila by chance but it is a wonderful place . The house is a very interesting slice of history. The cafe in the courtyard is a lovely place for a drink or snack while you decide where to see next .

The architecture of the place is giving you a glimpse of what it was way back in the past. It's clean and nice to take a photo shoot.

If you are into heritage architecture and history, you are better served visiting Silay or Vigan. Casa Manila is a recently built edifice that may or may not be a loyal replica of the original. Nonetheless a good place to take a rest if you are walking around intramuros.

Coming from Negros Occidental where there are dozens of old houses that are still well preserved, this place is too small and cramped up that it is a disappointment seeing the current state and size of the place. Nothing grand about the place. Visit only if you haven't been to real Spanish ancestral houses in the Philippines.
