1730 Jesuit House Feb 01, 2018
Converted into a museum last year, this house, built around 1730, offers a remarkable insight into the architecture and culture of 18th century Jesuits in Cebu.

Tucked behind high contemporary concrete walls right in the heart of the Parian district in Cebu City, the Jesuit House is an 18th century house that has been remarkably preserved throughout the years. It is very much hidden from public view so that only a very few, mostly history buffs, knew of its existence and origin. It has survived different transformations from being the residence of a religious community to a hardware store and warehouse. Not until the present owners converted it into a museum last year has the house slowly entered into the consciousness of the locals and into the pages of local tourist guide books and websites.
