The family is one of the many wealthy families that originate from Iloilo.This is perhaps one of the richest Ilonggo families, the sheer number of their mansions in the Ilo² region is a testament to that. This is the brief story of three or four of those fabulous homes but there are more and we will try to include them here in future reports. Enjoy!

A treasure is how best to describe this historical home. When you approach this home down the narrow driveway, you are struck by the palette of warm, soft colours that have been used on the home. It is said that in the recent years, in order to keep with the home’s historical significance that Don Gregorio and his wife, Madame Tirol have in vested large amounts of time, effort and money having the paint and other materials used on the exterior analyzed to ensure a perfect match in both tint and coverage so as not to negatively affect the structure and its majestic appearance. That is total dedication to a historically important property.
The building is striking because of its extensive use of columns on both levels. I hesitate to say that it appears to be built in the neo-classical style(?) The ground floor is built with bricks while the upper floor is made of wood.
