Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar


Brgy. Pag-asa, Bagac, Bagac, Bataan
Call (02) 332 5338
One of my favorite spots to be in. Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is reminiscent of the old Spanish era. A powerful testimony of the past, they meet at and diverge from various visual and architectural points with a balance that kept and maintained domestic histories and human lives within their walls.
Never a boring chore, the simple task of compiling the best spots to lurk around in the coming holiday is one ironic task since it is a tough thing to do. The provinces near Manila is full of amazing undiscovered places, and these here are the ones on top of our list. More or less just an hour to 3 hours away from the city, a visit on any of our recommended locations this coming  weekend! It will be a sure great way to spend time with your loved ones.
Take this time to not only recharge but also to reflect on life and the beauty of it as given by our Almighty God. We hope to have given you an idea on where to be this coming long weekend.
Enjoy and have fun!
