Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Upon entering, it feels like being warp back in time during the Spanish era in the Philippines.

Most of the houses in this place are during the 18th to early 20th century in the Philippines. They were gathered and relocated from the origin place and then reconstructed and restored here.

The Casa Binondo 1: infront of the house is the statue of the traditional game in the Philippines Palosebo or greased bamboo climbing (from Spanish words greased stick). The Long and straight bamboo poles are greased and polished to make them smooth and slippery. The contestants will try to climb the poles to secure the prize on top of the bamboo.
