Iligan City | Macaraeg-Macapagal Ancestral House
August 30, 2011, after our (me and my little sis) swimming class, we head immediately to Macaraeg-Macapagal Ancestral House. I was actually able to visit every corner of the place last August 7, 2011. However, the pictures I took during the tour was not good enough to share and somewhere actually accidentally deleted, I decided to dedicate a time after our swimming classes taking pictures inside the Macaraeg-Macapagal Ancestral House.
Ever since it was widely opened to the public, Iligan City Tourism already took over maintenance and management of the place.
|The structure you see is found on the left side of the area. These are new structures that were already constructed by the Iligan City Tourism. It's a function hall for events|
+ Jeepney Fare: Iligan City Proper - Buru-un (Timoga Spring Pool) = Php 12.00
+ Entrance Fee: Free
How to get there?
+ Ride a Buru-un Line Jeepney and tell the driver to drop you off Macapagal Ancestral House. :)
+ Private Vehicles: Just drive through along Macapagal Avenue passing by Maria Cristina Bridge and Timoga Spring Pools.
+ Taxi: (not recommended) Iligan City taxi drivers are not using metered taxis, it depends on the price agreed with the driver, that's why I don't personally recommend it.
So that you'll have a "sulit trip" before you go swimming at Timoga Spring Pools, you can pass by the Macapagal Ancestral house first and have a glimpse of the now considered historical home, take a tour and take great pictures there.
NOTE: The house is closed for Pre-Nup and Wedding pics which means it's not allowed unless you book the place for the reception or party.
Yes, they do accept party reservations. Just coordinate with the Iligan City Tourism. They do have rooms and apartments for rent within the vicinity.
