Quiapo Heritage Houses
One of Quiapo’s greatest treasures is its collection of heritage houses that date from the 19th and 20th century.
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.
Below are some of the heritage houses:
- Bahay Nakpil-Bautista (Calle A. Bautista)
- Paterno Ancestral House (Calle R. Hidalgo)
- Zamora House (Calle R. Hidalgo)
- Ocampo-Santiago House (Calle R. Hidalgo)
- Padilla Art Gallery (Calle R. Hidalgo cor. De Guzman st.)
- Estrella House (Calle Bilibid Viejo)
- Ocampo Pagoda Mansion (via Gonzalo Puyat st.)
