Estrella House (Calle Bilibid Viejo)
Built in the 1916, home to the Estrella family.
The house was used for filming scenes for several movies and television shows.
Like the Zamora House, plans are underway to sell or redevelop the property.
One of Quiapo’s greatest treasures is its collection of heritage houses that date from the 19th and 20th centuries. Quiapo east of Quezon Avenue was largely spared from the destruction of the Battle of Manila, thus providing a rare glimpse into Manila’s old architecture. Sadly, this treasure is underappreciated and largely endangered due to postwar “development” and lack of state support and regulation which has led to the demolition of many heritage houses and heritage structures in the city.
