The mosaic workshop is a turf for women. Aside for the need for slender fingers to do the projects flawlessly, patience is key in every art mosaic. Most of the mosaics are used for ceilings and wallpapers in the hotels, so you can just imagine how huge and grand every piece is.
Insider Tip: As of now, all of the arts and crafts made by the three workshops are used for the ongoing construction in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. In the future, when the heritage hotel and park are complete, they are looking into supplying these products to interested clienteles.
Not for the Faint of Heart
For people who are looking for more thrills aside from just walking around Las Casas and taking photos along, an outdoor recreational area underway. Located in an island off the coast of Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, it will take a 15-minute boat ride to reach it.
It has a trail for trekking, a blowhole for diving, and a zipline facility. Future plans for the place is to install green technology to compensate the needs of outdoorsy tourists.
Even the pool is pretty old-school.
Living life on the edge.
The Past Moves Forward
Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is full of potential. I am sure that it will soon be a reason that people from all over the world visit the Philippines for. Aside from the houses that they have amazingly restored, the stories behind them also tell tales of the our past – our heritage. Who knows? It may even get a UNESCO Heritage seal someday.
WHEN IN MANILA, Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a place not to miss. It may be a couple of hours away from the city, but it’s definitely worth the drive.
