A guided tour with their staff will fill you in on the history of the Legardas, including their passions and interests.
Here is Don Alejandro’s library, which houses rows and rows of reading materials.
Don Alejandro is also a photographer, and has set aside a part of the house for his camera collection (which is amazingly huge). Make sure to look for his photograph of the Roxas Boulevard in the ’30s. You’ll be in awe.
He is also a OB-gynecologist by profession. Here is his former clinic where he attended to his patients.
Inside the clinic remains a real skeleton of a human body.
Near the entrance door is their souvenir shop where you can purchase their homemade bottled specialties like the Queso de Bola Spread and the famous Salsa Monja. You can also buy postcards of Dr. Alejandro’s photographs here.
The living room is well-lit and fully-furnished. Several photos of the family are on display, including cute family portraits. Paintings also hang here, including the original La Inocencia by National Artist Felix Ressureccion Hidalgo and a painting of a woman in a black dress by Juan Luna no less.

The family has a vast collection of antique radio equipment. Dr. Alejandro being an avid member of the Philippine Amateur Radio Association, it is no surprise that they had hold a big collection over the years.
