Full of antique artefacts and furniture. Walking around in the house, you can easily imagine how life was in those days. Beautifully restored and well kept.

Colonial home allowing you to step back in time and get as a sense of what some homes may have been like both architecturally and decoratively. Most all finishings and decor are wood. No pictures are allowed to be taken inside. The home overlooks a beautiful courtyard surrounded by a few restaurants and shops.

This museum across from San Agustin church depicts the lifestyle of the Spanish rich in the Phillppines & is definitely worth a look when in the area

While the place has some nice features it didn't feel real, more like a prop. and whatever you do don't get off the red carpets. OK for a visit but only if you have extra time to waste.

If you are interested to see how the rich Spanish merchant class lived, situated outside of Intramuros, but inside the walled city, for a reasonable entrance fee, Adults: 75 PHP; Children: 50 PHP, we were able to see Casa Manila, which gives you a first-hand look at colonial lifestyle during Spanish colonization of the Philippines. It is a true testament... More

The Casa Manila is an old town house, belonging to a rather rich family. There one can peak into the life of the people of the upper class and see what being rich a few hundreds of years ago really meant.

It's a nice old house in the Spanish style but it has been refurbished and there a couple of good restaurants within the walls. you can get some good dreamy photos of you loved one stood on the colonial stairs. AND it's the only place we found who had postcards in the whole of Manila.

Take a step back in time, you must visit this building. I would urge everyone to google the history of thebuilding before visiting so it has real meaning to you.

Beautiful structure and really awesome cafes. It' nostalgic as you step into Casa Manila. Plants are well planted and cultured to beautify this place. It's a place where lots of newly wed couples taking their wedding pictures. A great place to visit.

I visited Manila several times, but on this occasion I went roaming around Intramuros more in details, as I had enough time. At some point I ended up in Casa Manila, and had a really nice time there. It was a relaxing atmosphere. I had a lunch in one of many nice places, and witnessed a local wedding held in... More
