Description

Travel north of Manila and discover the rich heritage of Pampanga and Bataan.

In Pampanga, we make a stop at Bacolor to see the famous San Guillermo Parish Church which is half-buried in lahar from the Mount Pinatubo eruption in 1991. Unlike the similarly buried Cagsawa Church, another popular Philippine site, the Bacolor church continues to function, with former windows serving as main entrances due to the original door being buried underground.

We then continue our way to Bataan to visit the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, an open-air museum heritage resort located by the sea. Marvel at historical stone houses which were reconstructed brick by brick, transported from their original locations around the Philippines, to recreate the feel of the Spanish colonial era. Enjoy the picturesque setting reminiscent of a Juan Luna or Amorsolo painting with its backdrop of majestic mountains, expansive rice fields and a running river that flows to the sea. Step back into the past, reliving the age-old traditions and practices distinct to Filipino culture without leaving the luxury and comforts of the modern world.

Take a guided walking tour and learn about the historical and cultural significance of each of the heritage houses. Afterwards, get to enjoy free time to explore on your own to experience the rest of the resort. Take a stroll along cobblestone streets or ride horse-drawn carriages around the village or go down to the beach for a swim.
