The house, decoration and Kitchenware are very well maintained. Nice to see and be in a house and environment of the period before I was born. Staffs were very helpful and nice helping us with photo taking and showed us around.

Super old and authentic house. It is amazing how it was preserved. Not super easy to find. If you are visiting Basilica or the old Spanish house- same area.

The tour guide went all the way to explain every corner of the house. He was proficient and knowledgeable. He even took time to get us pictures of the house in two's and groups. The Ancestral House is a good tourist spot on one's list.

Think of spending about an hour for the tour. It is an open house (still used sometimes by the owner) full of artifacts of cultural and historical significance. Like a museum, but you are allowed to even touch things. Try... More
