Heritage House Tour and Tsokalate at Camina Balay Nga Bato


If you have a half day to spare when you get to visit Iloilo City, a visit to Camina Balay Nga Bato in Villa Arevalo is a must. It can easily be reached as this is located just along the road plied by the Oton jeepney. The house is open to walk-in visitors and for a fee of P150, one is treated to a 5-minute video presentation on the history of the house, a tour of the house filled with hardwood furniture and all things old, and a demi tasse of tsokolate. For an additional cost of P50/pax, a group of five can also enjoy the house's molo soup. Filled with antiques (some are for sale), this heritage curio shop is also a dining place during the evening, serving native and organic home dishes such as lupo and takway. Here are some of the photos I was able to take during my visit:
