Casa Manila

Plaza Luis Complex, General Luna Street, Manila, Philippines

The Basics

Although the house itself is a reproduction built in the 1980s, all the furnishings inside are authentic and sourced from different homes. Guided tours are available, but you can also wander around the three-story house on your own. See the living room, dining room, and kitchen on the top floor, then move down to the bedrooms and office-library on the floor below. Don’t miss the double-seated toilet in the latrine. Finally, end your visit at the lovely fountain in the outdoor courtyard.

Many sightseeing tours, whether half-day or full-day, stop at Casa Manila, in addition to other top attractions such as Rizal Park, Fort Santiago, and the National Museum of the Philippines. Or experience Manila like a local and visit as part of a jeepney tour. Book a private tour to combine Casa Manila with other must-see attractions on your list.

We had a great day with Juliet, she was friendly, educational and set out a great day for us. We saw all of the sights we wanted to see in a safe and helpful way, and covered the ground in a way we wouldnt have been able to do by ourselves, and far better than being in a large tour bus. Worth the cost and recommended.

Private Half-Day Manila with Rizal Park and Fort Santiago
The tour was great, the driver and the tour guide were friendly and personable. Their English was very good as is the case with most people in the Philippines. I got to see beyond the usual metropolitan area and got a history lesson on the country and the national hero Dr. Jose Rizal.
