The Hidden Chapters in Manila
gru 2018 • Znajomi
Our Professor in Readings in Philippine History told us to visit museums and discover artifacts that contributes to the study of our country's history.

Hidden in the residential area part of Manila is Bahay Nakpil-Bautista that sheltered important people in the story of Spanish Colonization.

From Sta. Mesa, Manila, we rode a jeepney with a Quiapo sign then stopped at the bridge before Jollibee and other merchandise stores. From there, we walked for like 10 minutes to reach this amazing house of the Nakpils.

We paid an entrance fee of Php 50.00 and we got an amazingly layouted ticket. There's also a tour guide that will inform you of the vital details of the house.

It's a must-vusit for students and people who want I to listen to the other angle of our history.

An ancestral gem in midst of the chaotic Quiapo
sty 2016
I was hoping to find an interesting place near my university (UST) for a quick history fix, and decided to visit the well-known Fort Santiago or even the familiar National Museum. That was until Trip Advisor popped this ancestral house right on my face. Quiapo, it said. Weird that all the four years of passing that area more times than I could count, I haven't seen any ancestral house. I found it tucked neatly behind the buildings across Quiapo Church. A two-century-old home that housed the Nakpil-Bautista clan. The environment sure is taking its toll on the weary, old house, but it still is a treat for those who seek historical tales of the Katipunan and a peak on how family life was during the early 20th century.

There is an immediate peace once you enter the house, a contrast to a normal Manileñan street. The family has kept most of its more interesting furniture and memorabilia, and there won't be a lack of Katipunan stories from the tour guide (of the Nakpil family too, there is a charm to how she told the stories to match each and every part of the house). Other than late 19th century to early 20th century Philippines history and some historical figures, you will also learn a bit about Philippines architecture.

Hopefully we see more of this in the future, and it doesn't end up like most of the beautiful ancestral houses in Manila.

Interesting Secrets of Philippine History Told Here
lip 2014 • Znajomi
Unlike Casa Manila which didn't stick with me (I am looking for a deep story on why I should visit a place), this is one of my favorite house exhibits. Situated near the chaotic place of Arlegui (the place where imitation DVDs are sold), this house/museum may seem uninteresting at first but once you watch the video they play, you get to appreciate more the things surrounding you in this ancestral house. I learned a lot here and my view of Philippine history as well as the area of Quiapo has changed after our group visit. (How I wish part of Quiapo becomes restored to its former glory to make this place a worthy stop for more people.) I can't remember though if photography was or wasn't allowed because I didn't bring my camera buyt I think it wasn't. I still recommend this place though even without picture taking!

Great start off point for an excursion around Quiapo
lip 2014 • Dla rodziny
The bahay Nakpil-Bautista is a great jump off point to exploring the old Quiapo neighborhood. Parking is generally available right in front of the house, on what used to be Barbosa street, now called Bautista street.

The neighborhood is a bit rough looking, but the house itself is well preserved relative to all the other houses of its era in what used to be the pace to live in the early 1900's. The house celebrates its 100th year as it was built in 1914. Designed by Arch Arcadio Arellano, the house was inspired by Viennese furniture the family had, and quite a few details hint of an art deco style that was just coming into style in the 1920's.

The Nakpil heirs have actively worked to keep the house relevant by hosting art exhibits, historical fora, plays, and by putting a small museum together to celebrate the life of Gregoria de Jesus, one of the most inspiring residents of the old house.

Noteworthy to see in the vicinity is the old San Sebastian church, the only all-steel church of its kind in the country, and of course the Quiapo church, home of the black Nazarene.

More info on the bahay Nakpil house is available on its website

Bahay Nakpil ---Not just an old house, but a house full of rich history.
cze 2012 • Pary
A short detour to Quiapo we passed by this very old Spanish looking house. It turns out to be the house of the second wife of National Hero Andres Bonifacio.

Aside from Dr. Jose Rizal, Bonifacio is one of those heroes I admire while studying history way back.

We have talked to a certain Mang Raymond who is acting on behalf of the curator as he retells what transpire in this old house where Julio Nakpil married the widow of Andres Bonifacio who is Gregoria de Jesus.

There is no entrance fee last time we visited. I was told that the heirs of Nakpi-De Jesus are still active for the maintenance of that old place. There seems to be some souvenirs that you can buy inside this old house.

Exploring this old house which was built in 1863 you get to see old furnitures,
what they wear during those period, the bed they used and even how they make coffee.

I was told during my visit there that Gregoria de Jesus likes Kapeng Barako or coffee so much as evidence by this very old Coffee grinder.

There are old photos in display which shows some of those heroes during that time.

Well...if you are curious or want to take a peek what's life during the Spanish era in the Philippines then Bahay Nakpil is worth the trip as this is no ordinary old house.
